sounds like you got a virus. Does it give you the option on boot up to restore (maybe press F10 or alt + F10) if it was a factory install then they have probably made a factory restore partition on your hard drive but maybe not. other remedys are to purchase a restore disk for the gateway or reinstall windows XP (you might be able to use the XP restore feature) and download any drivers you need from here http://support.gateway.com/product/default.aspx?tab=1&modelId=2844 I would download the drivers with another computer or get a friend to do it as you probably wont be able to connect to the internet without the drivers installed. I have them if you need, but you can get them from the link.
When you restored the pc, did you make sure the drivers where re loaded.
Have you tried control panel / internet options / connections / lan settings.
It should have automatically obtain settings ticked
If your hard drive is still working fine, you shouldn't need to reinstall Windows again. Most of the time your PC will perform as it did before your motherboard died by simply reinstalling the original hard drive. If not then do this. Reinstall windows with your restore CD, and with most gateway laptops you should have a drivers and applications CD that restores your motherboard drivers and applications to their original locations.
If you lost your drivers CD, you can download them all here.
When asked, you should allow XP updates so that Service Pack 3 can install. This will add a few windows based drivers to your laptop that may be necessary for better video, audio and wireless performance.
Your restore CD may not ask for your CD Key, this is typical for a Vendors original restoration, but if for some reason it does, the number on the back of your laptop will work. Mine validated just fine.

you have probably already fixed this but maybe others can find this a little helpful. i had to downgrade a gateway ma7 for one of my customers who had lost their recovery cd with vista on it. Their HD had gone bad.
The reason the XP installer says "no HD" is because the the drivers required by the gateways Sata controller (hd controller) are not preloaded on the xp install disc. The only way around this is to download the windows xp compatible sata drivers from gateways website and then slipstream them into a custon windows xp install cd. its actually not as difficult as it sounds. just download the sata driver, a slipstreaming program called nlite.
1 download and install nlite 2 put in your xp install cd, and run nlite, when nlite asks, browse to the i386 folder (your installation files) 3 you will have lots of options to choose from, but for this purpose, choose "add drivers" and select the location of the gateway drivers (c:\cabs\something) i think. 4 finish and burn the cd. then use it to install windows xp.
this little guide isnt step by step, but with a little trial and error you should get by
