If the drive slides into a cavity in the laptop as most all do then this should apply. If you have the replacement drive, look at it and find a tab at it's rear with a threaded hole for a retaining screw. Locate the screw in the bottom of the laptop that corresponds with that location. Remove the screw. There should also be a small slide latch in that same area. Slide the latch to release,as you apply a pull on the finger grip on the bottom of the drive. The drive should let go with very little effort. Do not force, if it doesn't give easily, look closely for a second screw.

Look for an external swicth, to pull the drive out. If your laptop dont have it remove the bottom screws, the remove the
keyboard, finally you can push the cd drive out of the computer

Let me know if this post help you.

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
