There might be a restore partion. While the computer is first booting up look for something like "Press F2 to restore". If you don't see that then your machine probably doesn't have one and you will need to contact Gateway for a set of restore CD's.

How to reset to factory gateway sx 2801-07e


Tap F2 as the computer is booting and that should put you into the Restore commands. If not, use Windows Explorer to see if it has a partition with the operating system install files on it. If not, you may need a disk like this unless Gateway will supply you one.

What can i do to get to the recovery screen on my gateway desktop, its model is SX2110G-UW24?


I pulled this from the Gateway manual for your machine. It is a generic guide. If this doesn't work, you may not have a recovery partition on your hard drive and should have made recovery disks when originally getting the unit. Good Luck!

From the Gateway Manual......

Recovering from the hard drive during startup:
To reinstall Windows and all pre-installed software and drivers:
1. Turn on your computer, then press Alt+F10 during startup. Gateway
Recovery Management opens.
2. Click on Restore system from factory default.
Caution: Continuing the process will erase all files on your hard
drive.
3. Click on Next. Your hard drive's original, factory-loaded contents are
recovered. This process will take several minutes.

Need to reboot my dell/windowsXP hard drive to factory settings


You have to put in the cd that came with your dell, then boot your computer. It will boot from the cd and give you an option to restore your factory condition. It will take around 1-2 hours for the process to complete.

I lost some of my settings-microsoft word is just gone--can you have it reinstalled to this computer? How can I get the original factory settings back? I dont have a recovery disk?


Somewhere within your stash of Gateway disks, there might be a disk to restore Microsoft Office. If not, I would suggest contacting Gateway computers to see what your options are. They most likely have had this sort of question asked before. If not, you'll have to look at purchasing Microsoft Office. You shouldn't have to, but contact Gateway regardless.
