Question about Gateway 600XL Notebook

1 Answer

Gateway 6438 I have a Gateway 6439 laptop. My DVD/CD player reads in use in the properties. No disk are in the system. I believe this problem resulted from stopping a CD while in use. My system has since been slowed and my audio now sounds interupted. Any solutions

    Open the tray with a paper clip . Insert the same CD if possible. Tell it to stop in software. If that does not work, Remove and Reinstall the DVD software, or restore to an earlier date, before it happened..

Gateway m-1625 CD/DVD-rom won't read any disc. Its spinning but no read. any thoughts?


you might try taking a q tip and some alcohol and clean the eye ( a little glass looking circle ) that reads the disk. Do not touch it with your fingers. Sometimes dust or dirt can get on it and it will not read the disk. This also works on cd players as well as dvd players.

My gateway laptop's dvd/cd drive stopped working, all of a sudden, but it plays music cds, it is just the DVDs that don't play them or even explore... what could it be the problem? how do i solve it? it...


Are you sure yours is a DVD player? It could only be a CD-CD writer, which will NOT play DVDs.
Open your control panel ->system->hardware->device manager and click on the DVD/CD-ROM drives icon. The listed devices will tell you if you really have a dvd player or not. If you do really have a dvd player, try a different dvd

My m-6750 notebok will not play any cd/dvd, but reads it is working fine


Are you saying it will not play any purchased CD / DVD??

If not then check the country settings under the DVD properties.

Be aware that you can only change this setting once, any more can render the CD / DVD useless.

I believe the dvd drive went bad, it doesn't read any disks. Is it easy to replace, and do I have to take the whole laptop apart? Itsa Gateway 7510gx thanx in advance


you shouldnt need to disassemble the whole laptop more than likely there will be a couple of screws holding it in on my laptop it had a small cd looking symbol etched into the plastic next to the screw i unscrewed that one and my dvd drive pulled right out

Uninstall the dvd/rw driver, and reinstall it from the Gateway website. Look for your laptop model there, and they have all the drivers and software for your laptop components.
