Gateway laptop cd drive

I recently bought a Gateway laptop from bestbuy. When I went to put in a CD the other day, a message appeared that said I did not have a drive. I have used it since I bought it, so I know that one was properly installed, however, I don't know how it got uninstalled. Is there an easy soloution to this problem, or is it something I should bring my computer in for.

Sometimes the device driver gets uninstalled for several reasons.Go online to "Windows Update " and let "Windows Update install a new driver.
If "Windows Update" does'nt fix it, the give me your computer model number, and I'll get the driver for you.

It can use any 31/2" IDE hard drive. 30 Gb should be OK
If the BIOS cannot detect the hard drive or the CD drive then the drives maybe faulty or the disk controller in the computer is faulty.

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.

CD drive trying to play CD when drive is empty


Apparently your laptop still thinks there is a cd to play. Be sure you closed down all your programs. I am assuming that you already logged off and shut your computer down and restarted. It could be something as simple as your sensor that detects the cd being in place and just a little dust. Use some clean compressed air that comes in a can and can be bought like at Radio Shack or electronic supply house. Put the nozzle on and blow out any dust that may be in there. Power down and then restart your computer. That should take care of your problem.

CD Burner on Gateway Laptop


Sounds like the CD burner has gone out. First try doing a hardware search to see if it finds snd recognizes the CD burner. If not it will need to be replaced. Keep in mind that the drive may still read CD's fine without the ability to burn them.
