Question about Gateway M675 Notebook
I don't know how to get the cd out
You will need to remove the cd module from the right side of the laptop. To do this, power the laptop off. Close the lid and turn it over an lay it on it's top. You should see an oval shaped latch on the right bottom( where the cd module is located). Slide that towards the right hand side of the machine, carefully grip and pull the cd module out of the machine. At this point, you may be able to see the cd and be able to nurse it out of the module. If you need to open the door of the module, unfold a paperclip and place it in the very small hole (just about paperclip size) and press in while trying to open the door. If not, you may need to become a mechanic and remove a cover or two, to get to the cd.
If this has answered your question, please be kind enough to return long enough to rate this as solved. If you have further questions, feel free to ask.

To run the check disk utility you will need a repair disc or
a operating system disc. Put the disc in the cd drive and boot from
it. You want to get to the Dos Command Prompt (Black screen with white
letters) and type the following command: chkdsk /r
Check disk will run well over an hour or two and you will notice the percentages going from high to low, this is normal. Let it run to completion. Then reboot machine.
If check disk fails to solve your problem you might have to reinstall windows. Try doing a Repair Install that way you don't loose your data, documents, music, pictures, videos or programs.
In windows xp you get to the dos command prompt by selecting R for repair when the options appear.
In Vista and Windows 7 you want to get to the recovery console and look down at the bottom of the window for the Dos Command.
Also check your memory. It could be your memory chips or one of the memory slots.
Remove the Power Cord, Remove the Battery, Remove the cover that houses the memory on the bottom of the laptop then remove one of the memory chips. Set the chip aside then try rebooting the computer. If it boots, then you know the memory chip you set aside is bad so mark an x on it with an ink pen. If it fails to boot then move the chip to the next memory slot and try rebooting. If it fails take the chip out and set it aside, then put the other chip in and try booting it in both slots. If it boots, just to verify that the chip set aside is bad, mark an x on it and put it into the open memory chip slot and try booting.
