You need to make sure that when the pc boot up it looks for the disc in the cd/dvd drive,you do this by going into the bios, pushing a key when the system is booting (sometimes Delete key) and selecting the drive that you wish the system to start with
eg,"D" drive to start the setup for windows, if "D" is your optical drive.

good luck, let me know if you need any other help

When did you get this Gateway? Where did you get it? I assume you mean that it has no OS, cause Gateway does NOT make an operating System. Need more details, please!

Had to replace hard drive. Can't reboot using system restore disks. System recognizes new drive, but error message says disks are not for this computer. Got disks when computer was purchased. No...

You may have just recieved the wrong set of restore discs for your computer. Have you replaced the motherboard in this computer at any point? The discs look for a specific code stored within the motherboard bios to keeps people from using system restore discs to install an operating system on whatever computer they want.

You can try contacting the manufacturer to see if they will send you another set of restore discs. They often charge for these, however, if you explain your situation to them they may send you another set at little to no charge.

Hope this was helpful

I have a Dell Dimension C521 with Windows Vista and I tried to do the F8 and repair your computer and it doesn't work? Is there another way to set my computer back to factory settings?

If you have the software re-installation discs which should have shipped with the computer, you can insert them into the disc drive and boot to the CD. from there you will be given the option to restore the OEM software and image. If you do not have the Discs, Dell will typically send out at least one free copy even for out of warranty systems.
