Having problems with your Gateway MT3705 Notebook ?

I have a cd stuck inside my computer. i put it in the tray and when ejected the cd was no longer in the tray. how can i remove this cd? or do i need to have a professional look at it? thanks


Answers :

I would take the Drive to a professional unless you are familiar with the components inside a computer. If you are familiar then what you can do is Open the side casing remove the screews holding the drive. Remove the cables from the drive., then pull the drive out of the slot. Once it is out you will be able to unscrew the top lid off of the drive with 4 screws.
