    ha ha ha ha ha not quite you have to take out every screw all covers, remove the screen, remove the hard drive, disconnect keyboard, disconnect every freakin cable that is there then slide left side of the top cover up then to the left then remove two tiny hidden screws to get to the cdrom drive (drive was not user servicable)

Jun 22, 2014 | Gateway LT2030u Netbook


My solution was not so simple nor that cheap on 2 occacions I had to resort of...


My computer gets this message when I try to boot it:

PXE-E61: Media test failure, check cable
PXE-M0F: Exiting Intel PXE ROM.


Your computer is set to boot from the network (PXE = Netboot).
Go to your BIOS and make sure you boot from your hard drive.


Shouldn't be enabled by default

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.

When I turn on the computer, I get a message that says "invalid system disk - replace the disk, and then press any key"

I have had this error before. Check your floppy and CD/DVD drives to see if there is a disk in them. If so remove and restart with your drives empty. This has helped me in the past.
