None. USB is the only option if it is a laptop as there is no room or place to put it.

SOURCE: replacing dvd/cd-rom drive on gateway laptop

Depends - what gateway? the one you listed under?? Because the model you posted with already came with a DVD drive.

Reply with the model of your machine and i can probably find you help. Gateway usually has instructions on their site.

The instructions for the M305CRV are here.

That model can use pretty much any standard laptop CD if you dont mind the face not matching get a generic drive like the Sony CRX880a at

Forgot login pasword on gateway lt4010u


If this is a Windows password, then you can ask local laptop tech to erase the password. Usually it cost $25 - $50. If this is a BIOS password, then you need to contact laptop manufacturer.

I receive a no operation system message while booting


Buy a new hard disk drive! Use the 2 golden Gateway, Applications, Drivers, & Operating System disc, also known as Restoration DVD to reinstall your Gateway programs & operating system. After that, reinstall your backups.

How much disk space do you need? Why buy a 320 GB HDD if you only use 4 GB? So, keep the bytes down if you don't need them and that will keep the costs down, too!

The Gateway support discs can be had at: www.Gateway.com/Support .

Gateway m-465 dvd-rw drive will not detect disc in drive.


it is probably an internal error with the dvd drive. if not check the dvd or cd you are putting in to make sure it is not scratched. if it isn't the disc it is prob the disk drive pop it out , what always works for me is, whipe the lens of the disc drive with a tiny amount of alcohol on a soft small cloth.(slowly) if that still doesn't work and your computer cannot detect the disc and it's content see what disc u are using and if your disc drive can support it.

Dvd drive will not read burned discs


The laser is weak and its not burning discs properly to begin with. Get a new drive put in there and that will take care of the problem cause a new drive will have a new laser in it.

Hey,

There is a small hole in the cd / dvd drive tray, you can use a needle or something small to push in, it will eject the drive tray and the cd.
