Why won't my Gateway PC DVD drive close?

Are all the Windows and Gateway updates and Hotfixes in? Look for a DVD rom fix on the Gateway website support. If there is no disk in the drive and it opens, you may want to replace it. You can try a work-around, I have no idea if it will solve the problem, but at boot open the BIOS, go to Boot sequence, Change HDD to boot first. DVD/CDrom 2nd or 3rd.

Ive looked and looked and my gf really needs to upgrade her graphics but i cant find a solution to this she is using a sx2803 gateway and its a mini tower and we need something to fit in it please anyone...

Since the Gateway SX2803 is a mini tower, you will most likely want to use a 'low-profile' video card. These cards are built short, so they can fit in smaller cases. You can find a fair selection here:

As for what /type/ of card, you should be able to determine what type of expansion slot(s) your computer has from the user manual, or by opening the case. I know the Gateway SX2803 25e has a free PCIe x16 slot.

I need a new graphics card with an HDMI output, preferably 1gb, for the Gateway SX2803-25e computer recently purchased.The one furnished with the computer will not support many online games. Can you...

You have a PCI Expres x 16 expansion slot so can can pretty much put any video card into it. But don't know how much space you have in the case , you might need low profile one. Or just how much money you want to spend. Here is an example of a 1GB low profile card that have HDMI out. EVGA 01G-P3-1302-LR GeForce 8400 GS Video Card - 1024MB DDR2, PCI Express, DVI, VGA, HDMI, Low Profile
You can do a search on this card.
