The Gateway T-6836 laptop has shipped with 4 models of 8x DVDRW drives. The models are:
Toshiba (TSST) TS-L632P
Sony AD-7563A
HLDS GSA-T40F
HLDS GSA-T20F
It's not possible for me to look up which specific one shipped in your system, but looking at how Gateway has listed them (they are all listed as the same Gateway part number) they are interchangeable within this model, so it would not matter which one it is replaced with.

In most of these laptops there is one screw on the bottom that holds the dvd drive in place, generally there is a icon of a disc there or similar

unscrew that one screw and try to pull out the drive, when you get the drive out, on the top of the drive will be a label with details of the drive. Its a slimline drive, depending on what kind of drive it is, if it is a SATA drive, then you can get a replacement from here http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&N=2010100005%201036508673&name=Slim%20DVD%20Burner for quite cheap.

or look around www.ebay.com

if you post me the details that read on top of the drive I can help you in finding a replacement.

Thanks,
Ekse

Do I need software to get my comp to recognize a new Mad Dog Multimedia external DVD/burner drive?


Hello

Depending on which version of windows you are using, you might need to install the drivers for the device.

I know XP and older versions have a mush smaller internal driver database than windows vista or windows 7.

You don't necessarily need to install software to operate the device, just need the driver installed, then your computer will recognize the device.

Hope this can help you.

Kind regards
Andrea

My computer won't boot up when I install my new DVD burner


Hi,
your armada can support optical devides as of dvd burners, but you will erase your bios/cmos memory in order to work.

locate your cmos battery, remove it for a few seconds turn on your laptop, this will cause your cmos memory clear out. then turn off and reconect your cmos battery, you will to set up your dates. If this didnt work maybe your optical drive does not function well, if you disconnect any optical device and your laptop startup well then you will to send it back to the vendor, because of a faulty in your dvd burner.

My DVD-RW doesen't read CD or DVD


Is this a new drive? Is so, it's probably faulty and you should return it to where you purchased it. If you've used it before, are you using the same kind of discs? Or are the new and different brand? If so, try to get the same kind that worked before. Another thing you should do is clean the drive. You can buy cd drive cleaning kits really cheap.
