SOURCE: low virtual memory
Virtual memory means you're running out of memory, so it's using your hard drive storage as memory. This is slow. This is an indication you: Have too little memory and need to run fewer programs or install more memory; and also increase the size of your virtual memory, which will also make your disk space tighter. If you are really pinching the computer that badly, you may want to consider buying a new laptop altogether -- the prices have come down a -lot- just in the 2 1/2 years since you bought that. Anyway, to work around the immediate problem:
Your Gateway came with Windows XP Home Edition. Click Start: Control Panels. See if you can find the Performance control panel, possibly by switching to "Classic view." In there, look for the memory tab. Find the virtual memory section. It may be set to "Let Windows decide." change it to at least 1000mb.
You can get a bigger hard drive (after buying an external case to move stuff over) and upgrade your memory to as much as 1.25gb; but you may find those purchases to not be sensible relative to the price of a new laptop. Memory is cheap and relatively easy; the hard drive is more difficult and will set you back at least $100 if you do it yourself.

That is your recovery partition. If you were to run system restore or I beleive on that paticular computer if you were to hit f10 when the system is booting it would also run the system restore. This will restore the computer back to the way it was originally from the factory. You dont want to lose or erase that partition or the only way to reformat would be with an OS disk and you might have to go hunting for drivers.

Sounds like either you have corrupt system files or viruses that are not allowing the operating system to run properly.
when you first turn on the laptop hold down the ALT key and keep pressing F10, if it works then this will take you into the factory restore partition and you can bring your system back to factory defaults like it just came out of the box.
if that method doesn't work then If you have the cd's to your laptop you'll need to restore your laptop back to factory defaults doing it this way.

Before you go puling it apart, check in device manager to see if it appears, if it does and still isn't recognised try downloading CDgone, right click on the downloaded file and choose Extract All, then double-click on cdgone.reg Say "Yes" to the merge question and then reboot. See if the drives have returned. You may have to re-install CD burning applications, since they're the ones that tinker with the filter setting in the registry that caused the drives to disappear. Good luck
