Question about Gateway Computers & Internet

I just bought my new Gateway and after hooking everything up have noticed that my disk drives will not open when pressing the eject button. In doing so the button went right through the computer housing. How do I go about taking this in under warranty?

How do Imanually ejecting a disc from a gateway

There should be a small round hole on the door near the eject button.
Using a straightened heavy paper-clip, insert straight into the hole.
There is a lever inside that you will feel, press in until the door comes partly open.
Then you can pull the door to access the disk.

I can't open my disc drive on my Acer Aspire 5820T without using a pin. How do I get the eject button to work?

I suggest that you can use the other method to eject: press start and go to my computer, select the disk drive and you should see an eject option in the menu bar.Remember that disk drives are subject to computer admin and do not respond quickly to a button press, especially if a disk process in taking place...

You can right click on the cd drive icon on my computer and click on eject. Also you can press the open button of the disk drive. It lies below and sometimes inbetween the opening drive. Hope that helps you.

My disc drive won't eject.

If there is CD/DVD stuck inside:look for a small hole on the face of the drive and insert a paper clip, and press a bit, the drive will open.
If that does not do the trick, look for an icon on the systray (where the clock is shown) . It represents a square inside which there is disk.The tooltip (bubble) should read Optical Drive Power (on or off). If you click on it it shows a two item menu Power On Power Off with a tick mark near one of them. Click Power ON.

Hope it helps.

How do you remove a cd in the gateway one GZ7108 computer when you cannot load windows?

- open the cover
- remove ventilation shroud

you'll see that some electronics od CD/DVD drive are exposed (right side of PC, face of the drive where the CD is inserted)

You can easily locate an LED, if not turn on the pc and you'll see that blink. Right next to it there is a little bump. Try pressing that with something non-metallic, blunt. It should feel like pressing a button, in fact it is a hidden button.

While the pc is on press that once and wait for the disk to eject.

CD not coming out of my MacBook

Things I might try that you may or may not have tried already:
  1. Reboot and try to eject again.
  2. Reboot and hold down your mouse button during start up.
  3. Reboot and hold down your the eject button during start up.
If those don't work, check to see if your disk drive is warped in anyway. My old MacBook would only eject if I pried the slot open a little.

I hope you can get your disc out.

I have a Gateway 300x Micro-Tower case circa 2002 and I can not open the case, without breaking it. I'm trying to install a new audio card and can't get at the 300x innards. Help!

Most of these towers are vertical style, therefore the big button is just to the left of the Gateway symbol. Push it in and pull the left panel away from the case.

Disk drive won't open

When it makes clicking sounds, there are several possible problems;
1. The gears that operate the disk drive are stripped or broken. (offset)
2. There is something interfering the with the opening of the disk drive internally.

Solutions. (Since it is recintly purchased)
1. Return it to the store for an exchange.
2. Send it to Sony for repair. (If you complain to the manager, they will give you a free game or other hardware.)
