Disc tray for gateway 5404 will not open

1 Answer

Do you see a small little pin hole in the front of the tray? IF so, then take a paper clip, and open it up and get it as straight as you can. Push the paper clip straight into the hole and it should open the disc tray for you.
If there isn't a small pin hole in your unit, then this trick will not work.
Good luck.

MY id58 GATEWAY DVD PLAYER, i cant insert a disc because blocked by the mechanism eventhough there is no disc inside.


There is a small hole on the front of the drive. Use a paperclip or a safety pin in the hole to push open the disc try enough to pull it open the rest of the way with your hand. Insert the disc, press the button on the drive to close the bay. If the tray doesn't close gently push the tray back in. If no lights blink on the front of the drive, the drive may be unplugged or has gone bad.

Make sure your computer boots from the disc drive by going into the bios and assigning it as the first boot device. Then let it load and do a startup repair.

I cannot eject a mini cd from my gateway one computer. please help.


When the door won't open, you should see a small hole on the front of the tray, get a fine screwdriver or needle push it in until you hear a click the tray should pop open, pull it all the way out to retrieve your cd and check for any deb-ri, try a standard size disc to see if it will work, if not the assembly may need replacement.

You can open manually using small metal stick (metal paper clip).
Turn off PC, poke small hole (under the tray) gently. Check the rubber ring (like fan belt that goes to electrical motor), it might too loose.
