Question about Gateway Computers & Internet
1. That would indicate your hard drive is either bad or corrupt.
2. You can try and boot of your windows xp cd, select R at the first prompt to go into recovery console and run chkdsk. That often fixes these kinds of problems.
3. If that doesn't work, you can take your hard drive and, using a usb enclosure or cable to convert the type of hard drive you have to usb, attach it to another computer and remove your files that way.
4. If the chkdsk didn't work, it may be time to purchase a new drive.
