|my dvd +-rw drive pops open randomly. i will shut it and it pops open again, almost like it doesn't latch right. it chooses when to read drives too. it is almost like it is reversed. when empty, it pops open. when a disk is in it, it won't eject or open or read most the time.|
i messed with some upper and lower filters one day and now can't find the video to change the registry back. supposedly these setting were supposed to help my computer run faster. my system restore will only go back to july 2010 and know i did it before that.
thought about doing a system restore to factory original but gateway does not have recovery disks any longer for this compuer. not happy about that.
do have the os disc that came with system. tried to download drivers from gateway but encountered an error and wouldn't download.
any help would be appreciated with either the drive or where i can download the system recovery disks. i'm know enough to obviously get myself into trouble by trying to fix things myself.
note: drive d: was partitioned and says recovery files but don't know how to access. pressing f11 at startup automatically wanted a cd and couldn't exit to navigate to the d: drive.
thanks to anyone who can help.
