Question about Gateway M505 Notebook
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 have been available in my computer.
Using the Gateway manuals I was able to open the cd-rom drive but was not sure if there were any ways to repair the cd-rom after opening it?
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!
