I think that you have a problem with driver. Try to find a driver for you DVDRom, install it. That'll be fine again.

The driver for the DVD-ROM drive is a part of the chipset drivers for your motherboard. The first thing I'd do would be to uninstall it in Device Manager (right click and select "Uninstall" - then reboot and let Windows re-detect and install it. If that doesn't work, then try updating your motherboard/chipset drivers from the Gateway support website.
