Question about Gateway Computers & Internet
Noting so far. I don't want to break the case. I have a small disk stuck into stuck in the floppy disk slot.
Unscrew a green large knob screw in the back, then the cover of the case should slide backwards. It will be tight because it fits snugly into place, but just push backwards and it will break free and reveal the insides to you.

SOURCE: floppy disk is stuck
Unless you feel like becoming MacGuiver for a few minutes, my suggestion is to order a new floppy from tigerdirect.com. Many to choose from, including card readers, and they're all dirt cheap.
If you do feel like roll playing as Richard Dean Anderson, here's what you'll need to do:
- Remove the floppy drive from the case after shut down and unplug.
- Remove the floppy face-plate to gain access to the front-side internal mechanics.
- There may be a broken rivet connecting the button to lever or a broken spring... anything that's out of place and just hanging or floating about.
- If you can identify the broken or loose part, you may now become MacGuiver and attempt to 'fix' the problem by whatever means you can think of.
Uhm... it's 2009. Why are you still using floppy's? Not to be rude or anything, but 3.5's went obsolete when the SD card came. My opinion is: get rid of the floppy drive. It's useless. There's a card reader that will fit in the slot and a wide variaty of cards that hold far more data and more securely than the ole 3.5.

To Access the BIOS setup utility start the PC and press and hold the F1 key until the setup menu appears. This must be done before the Windows Logo appears.

If the drive is trashed, just force the drawer open. If you don't want to do that, you should be able to disassemble the drive enough to get the disk out by removing screws... Sometimes the screws are underneath stickers, or warranty stickers, etc etc.

You should be able to replace the floppy drive from within the computer case. Open the case be removing one side, unplug the ribbon cable connecting the floppy drive to the motherboard and the power cable connecting it to the power supply, and slide out the floppy drive. There may be screws holding it in place that need loosened first.
