Disconnect the power to the computer and ground yourself by touching the outside of the case at a screw. Open & remove the cover on the side of your computer and take a look at the back of the CD drive.
There should be two sets of cables attached to the back of the drive. One is a wide flat cable that attachs to the mother board. The other is a smaller set of 3-5 wires with usually a white or clear plastic connector that comes from the power supply (the box in back with a fan inside it). This latter is the power to the drive. Make sure it is firmly connected. If it's loose, seat it firmly. If it's not loose, check to see that the wide flat cable is seated firmly at both ends.
If these connections seem to be intact, you could try disconnecting them, then rebooting the computer, then shut down, unplug again and after grounding yourself, reconnect them. This will trigger the plug and play in xp to detect the cd drive and attempt to install it anew. If it works, you'll see a balloon window near the notification area that says new hardware found, shortly after you boot up and log into windows (with an administrator account).
If that doesn't work, I'd suggest that the drive itself may have died. You could probably install a new one yourself, but if you're uncomfortable with that, take it to a local shop and they'll be happy to sell you a used or new cd drive to fit your needs.
I hope this answers your question. If I can be of any further assistance, please feel free to follow up. And in any case, let us know how this sorts itself out.

Gateway computer LX series need to recycle power before it will go into post.

The only reason I can see in a no POST issue is because of a defective hardware in your computer.

1. Try to remove all the cables at the back of your computer tower and power cycle it for 15 seconds.
2. Plug the power cord back in and the monitor cable only then start your computer.
3. Put the devices one-by-one to your computer tower until you see the faulty device.
4. If no faulty device detected after connecting all the connection at the back of your computer tower.
5. Try to open up your computer tower and reseat your Video card, memory, HD cables and CPU as well.

Let's investigate if the problem will reoccur.
