There should be a lock/screw on the bottom of the PC that will realease the old unit. If you are unsuccessful a local PC shop can do it for around $25 and maybe while you wait.

Factory restore


If you have the recovery disks for you computer insert them into the CD/DVD ROM and follow the on screen wizards. If not then you have to order a recovery Drive from Gateway or you can download the ISO image of desired operating system and burn it on a DVD and then do a clean install. Afterwards download the required driver from gateway.

Which cd drive


If you post the Gateway Model Number it would be helpful. Do you have one or two drives? Is the drive in the Computer folder? If so, you can right click the Icon, select Properties, select Hardware tab, your DVD/CD Rom will be listed, copy the DVD/CD Rom part number, Google search the part number.

Cd is stuck in my gateway computer


If you open Computer in the Start Menu, right click on the DVD/CD Rom, select Eject , it still will not open? Look for a "pin-hole" on the DVD/CD drawer, near the button, insert a pager clip. If the CD has exploded, which happened to me, you will have to remove the DVD/CD Rom and dissemble it.

Press F1, ie for Gateway to enter Bios settings.
Go to your BIOS MENU,

From "Boot options" set 1st boot to "removable drives" save the setting, ie if you are using an external CD/DVD or USB flash drive. If you are using an external CD/DVD Rom, ensure that the power supply to the external CD/DVD Rom drive is sufficient.

Try and reinstall the Operating System again.

Hope it helps, and good luck.

I need a recovery disk for gateway nx860s, do you know where i can find a free download?


The recovery software for the Gateway NX860s is stored on the hard drive itself. As long as you have the original hard disk drive and have not repartition the drive the information is probably still there.

You can create recovery CD's by doing the following.
  • Click Start->Run
  • Type the following, including the quotation marks on the run line: "C:\WINDOWS\CREATOR\CD Creator.exe" /drv
  • Click 'Burn ISO'
  • click 'Start Creation'
  • Select either CD or DVD depending on which type of media you are writing to and click 'OK'
  • The application will copy the files to your disk, when it's complete click 'OK'
If you are not able to run the recovery application but believe that the recovery files are still on the hard disk drive then you will need to run a recovery on the system being rebooting and pressing F11 when prompted to start a system recovery. The actual recovery will restore you access to the files to later create a back up cdrom.

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
