I grabbed this from another site. It worked fantastic, give it a try and it might fix your problem, I know it helped me tones after spending nearly 2 days playing with a similar sounding problem as yours.
Gateway Laptop Freezes during System Restore
Had the same problem, turns out it's a well known issue to Gateway and Microsoft it's due to "SpeedStep" and it must be disabled. Here's the chat log with Gateway tech support:
do these steps to disable SpeedStep in the BIOS Setup Utility and then run System Restore again on your computer.
1. Turn on the computer and begin pressing the F2 key in one-second intervals. If you perform this step correctly, you see the BIOS Setup Utility menu. If Windows loads normally, repeat this step.
2. In the BIOS Setup Utility, press the RIGHT ARROW key to select the Advanced menu.
3. On the Advanced menu, change the Intel SpeedStep setting from Enabled to Disabled.
4. Press the RIGHT ARROW key to select the Exit menu.
5. On the Exit menu, select Save Changes and Exit
6. Restart the computer and run System Restore.
7. After completing the restore, download and install the Critical Update for Windows XP (KB885626) package from the Microsoft Web site.
8. Once the KB885626 package is installed, re-enable Intel SpeedStep in the BIOS Setup Utility.
Myself...I am not going to turn SpeedStep back on it caused me enough time and hassle that I don't want to take a chance that it will screw something else up.
Hope that helps anybody that finds this issue too. I got here by Googling but didn't find a fix anywhere on the net until I chatted w/ Gateway. And if the Laptop was not under warranty, they wouldn't have talked to me. Sad that it's a well know issues and one cannot even search their site for "a known issue"

You can make a bootable Recovery Console CD by downloading an ISO file and burning it to a CD.
The bootable ISO image file you need to download is called:
Download the ISO file from here:
Use a new CD and this free and easy program to burn your ISO file and create your bootable CD:
Here are some instructions for ImgBurn:
It would be a good idea to test your bootable CD on a computer that is working.
You may need to adjust the computer BIOS settings to use the CD ROM drive as the first boot device instead of the hard disk.
These adjustments are made before Windows tries to load.
If you miss it, you will have to reboot the system again.
When you boot on the CD, follow the prompts:
Press any key to boot from CD...
The Windows Setup... will proceed.
Press 'R' to enter the Recovery Console.
Select the installation you want to access (usually 1: C:\WINDOWS)
You may be asked to enter the Administrator password (usually empty).
You should be in the C:\WINDOWS folder.
This is the same as the
C:\WINDOWS folder you see in explorer.
The Recovery Console allows basic file commands like: copy, rename, replace, delete, cd, chkdsk, fixboot, fixmbr, etc.
For a list of Recovery Console commands, enter help at the prompt or read about the XP Recovery Console here:

The file is an ISO image file... if you are familiar then skip to the link, otherwise we've also got instructions on how to create a CD from the ISO file.
Burn Vista Recovery Disc ISO to CD
You may already have a tool to do this such as Nero, but the best tool available for burning ISOs is ImgBurn, a freeware utility that does nothing else but burn ISO images, and it does it well.
Open up ImgBurn, and then click on the "Browse for a file" button, selecting the file you downloaded from Neosmart.
Put a blank CD into the drive, and then click the big Write button.
