I understood thgat this supports windows Xp operation system ...so you gonna need at least a boot-able cd with windows xp to reinstall ...and format it clean ..
it is enough to reinstall the xp clean from the cd ...by booting from cd ...and after that you will find the drivers for sound and graphics in that location that I linked above....
if you do not have an xp boot-able CD ..and ca not find one ...try to locate an image ready to be burned with a version of xp on a torrent site ..or just ask a fried,,,
the hard part were the drivers ..and I took a look and they are about all there ...
After the installation and the formating of the C partition ...you can just format the others .....to be clean ...but keep in mind that you need the sound....graphics and Lan card ..driver at least to make it functional...Im not sure if it has wireless capability but if it has ..the driver shoul be there ..if not ...ask again here ....
have a nice day !

You can purchase recovery media directly from Gateway via this link:
https://secure.tx.acer.com/RCDB/Main.aspx?brand=gateway

Or if you just want to get downloads (drivers, presumably manuals and the like,) go here:

http://support.gateway.com/support/drivers/dlcenter.asp?cmpid=topnav

I'd recommend having the recovery media handy no matter what, though.

Without a visual inspection it would be impossible to say. But it does sound like you will almost certainly need a new motherboard.

Wireless


1) A working WiFi adapter, USB or PCMCIA.
2) A Wireless signal to connect to.

Windows already has built in WiFi software.
