Having problems with your Gateway PC Laptops ?
Gateway m-465 dvd-rw drive will not detect disc in drive.
It is probably an internal error with the dvd drive. if not check the dvd or cd you are putting in to make sure it is not scratched. if it isn't the disc it is prob the disk drive pop it out , what always works for me is, whipe the lens of the disc drive with a tiny amount of alcohol on a soft small cloth.(slowly) if that still doesn't work and your computer cannot detect the disc and it's content see what disc u are using and if your disc drive can support it.
