Question about Gateway Computers & Internet
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.
