If you have created recovery cd and it don't work. i think the only problems how to recover your important files on your system.
If your gateway has a license software like windows operating system it is easier for your to reinstall it again. If you don't have then provide a bootable windows xp/vista cd/dvd and then reinstall your system.

note: this will tottally destroy all your files in it. this will start a very fresh windows operating system.

After installing windows. You must install all the drivers to optimized your system performance.

this may not solve your problem if you have more important files on your system. in this case try to notify me for further instruction.

Trying to restore emachine to factory settings.. When I go to emachines recovcery management, I get something saying "Empowering Technology is not ready. try again Later"

This is usually a sign that the partition on your hard drive that the recovery media is located in is corrupt. 3 reasons for this:
  1. bad recovery partition from the factory (bad image)
  2. Virus or spyware corrupted files to prevent usage which would prevent you from removing the problem with a recovery.
  3. Hard Drive issues (physical sections of the drive going bad.)
If you created recovery media, use those to recover your system. If you didn't, you may have to purchase recovery media from gateway for your model to recover the computer.

While it may cost you $30 to $50 dollars for the recovery media, it is a lot cheaper than the alternative of getting a tech to try to repair the partition or track down the virus or spyware.

The other advantage of recovery media is if the problems you were experiencing are hard drive related, you can put a replacement drive in and use those recovery disks to get your system working again.

Recivery disk

The recovery disk is nothing more than an Windows install disk with all the drivers already in. If you don't have it then install Windows using any other Windows disk and your key and download, save and install the drivers manually after that.
You can find them here

I have a 507gr gateway. I created a recovery set and then lost them. I tried to create a new set but get the message that one set was already created. It will not allow me to create a new set. Is there any...

By recovery set did you mean the recovery volume on your hard disk or the restoration point you create with Windows Backup and Restore? If it is the later one, you can try to change some settings or install something which will make the system ready for another restoration point if it is not. If it is the first one, then you might need to contact the manufacturer so they can use their tools to create one for you.

If you didn't create recovery disks when you got the computer, you will need to contact Gateway for them.
I would question the supposition that you have a virus. If you do, you can usually at least get into safe mode. I would suspect a hardware problem in your case.

It won't start up normally, asks for recovery disk, which I cannot find

When you bought the computer, it should have had an application to create your recovery disks, if you didn't make those and you cannot boot into windows, then you will need to contact gateway support and purchase software recovery disks.

Dont have recovery disks and have virus...actually just missing disk 2

If the popup you're getting is from something like "MS Antispyware 2009" or similar, that's the same trouble I've seen on several other computers. Download a removal tool called ComboFix. You can find information on how to use it and links to download it here. This is a handy tool even if the virus you have is different as it will fix a number of virus and trojan problems. ComboFix can be run in safe mode if your computer can't start all the way into Windows. Turn your computer on, and when you see the Gateway logo screen press the F8 key. This will give you a startup menu screen from which you can pick starting in safe mode. This prevents Windows from loading everything except the minimum stuff it needs to start. Run ComboFix and let it repair the troubles it finds.
