Having problems with your Gateway PC Laptops ?

It doesn't recognize my DVD/CD player

\015 It opens up from time to time, but it won't recognize the drive itself.\015

Answers :

I'm not sure about it only opening time to time, but to get your PC to recognize your DVD/CD player, assuming you're using Windows, right click on My Computer.

From there access Device Management (I'm on a Mac right now, not sure exact words). Find your DVD/CD driver in the list, disabled and enable it.

If that doesn't work, uninstall it. Then scan for hardware changes, and install it (should be automatic, no need for you to download anything)
