The optical drive bay screw was hidden by a plastic cover on my Gateway M505B2. It was the ONLY screw on the computer that was hidden, so I missed it and broke off the faceplate of the CD/DVD drive when trying to remove the drive. (Grrrrrrr...) So finding the link for the correct procedure was most welcome. (I carefully glued the faceplate back onto the drive...)

Yeah, the solution posted in the Gateway manuals was the way to go, the only trick was to figure out the one screw that is responsible to remove the cd-rom. I was wondering if anybody knew of any way to repair the cd-rom after opening it?

Since a couple of months, the cd-rom does not allow me to insert a cd, feels as if something is blocking the slot and am sure there is no cd in there, otherwise the cd details would be available in my computer.

Dell gx 260 there is no disc in the drive.


OK, first of all you said you put a blank DvD in the drive. Make sure your dell has a DvD writer. Look on the drawer of the drive and see does it say DvDrw or DvDROM. It has to say Rw for rewritable and not ROM for Read Only Media. Maybe you have a Combo Drive that is DvDrom and CDrw which means it will read both DvD's and Cd's but in can only Write CD's.

If in fact you do have a DvD writer make sure you're not trying to put a Blue Ray disc in the drive.

Lastly, remove the DvD from the drive. Click Start/My Computer. Notice what it brings up as to your DvD Drive. Does it Say DvDrw or just plain ole DvD. DvD means it will only read a DvD.

Go to your nearest gateway service and buy for dvdrom drive because your dvdrom drive is a disposable electronic device. In case there is no compatible dvdrom drive to your laptop buy a usb dvdrom drive external. Have a nice day.

Gateway M505 internal cd-rom slot does not take in a cd dvd


Not unless you know A LOT about electronics. It's best to just remove the drive and buy a replacement on ebay.

You can either search for M505 drive

or use the part numbers from the drive if you want an exact replacement.

Best of luck!
