    Thanks Mom-01, apparently there is info! Was also way off, where the single screw to remove the DVD drive was located. (Was right about the single screw though, sheesh)

    Should be one single screw that you remove from the bottom of the laptop. It's best to have no electrical sources to the laptop at this time, so remove the AC adapter, (Charger), if plugged in, and the Battery. Turn the laptop over. Look towards the Left side of the laptop, (To the right now that the laptop is upside down) See that rectangular vent on the bottom towards the DVD drive side? Now come back about an inch to the left of that vent. Bottom left corner of the vent, there is a hole. There is a Philips head screw down in this hole. Use a No.1 Philips screwdriver to loosen it. Turn the laptop over slowly with your hand underneath this hole, and catch the screw. Gently pull the DVD drive out.

How do I nremove the cover on a Gateway 200arc to replace the DVD drive..... Thanx

Looking at it from the bottom with the dvd drive to your right look for a screw about five and a half inches or so from the right hand side will either be in the middle line of the dvd drive or offset to oneside or the other. remove it and gently pull on the dvd drive or use an old credit card to pry it out till the connectors release. Then slide the replacement drive into place, and put the screw you removed back in.
