Question about Gateway GT4010 (RBGT4010) PC Desktop
I have the 4010 gt and a gt 4016 is this the same system? if si can I just put the hard drive from the 4010 into the 4016?
Yes and no, are they both the same operating systems, usually the computer will search for the hard drive and reconfigure the setting and it may work, sometimes it will not reconfigure, just keeps running. Try it can not hurt anything will work or not.

You don't say which Operating System you use, so my answer will be presented in general, Windows terms. If yours is a non-Windows Operating System and my answer seems to be of some relevance to you, please consider applying the logic and principles involved here to your own Operating System and, if in doubt, please feel free to add a Comment or Clarification to this Question. Please include information about its Operating System. Doing so helps us makes faster, more accurate and more assured Remote Diagnostics leading to better quality and more useful Advice, Answers, Guidelines , How-Tos and Solutions.
You also don't say what happened and what fault caused you to need to try to run the recovery program.
It seems the recovery CD has altered the Boot Sector of the Hard Drive.
If the data on the hard drive is important:
Unplug and turn off the laptop > remove the battery > use a small screwdriver to open the Hard Drive compartment with the picture of a small stack of CDs next to it > remove the retaining screw or clip > remove the Hard Drive > use a Hard Drive Dock or an External 2.5" Hard Drive Enclosure (for this you have to remove the small silver Hard cradle that holds the Hard drive fast in the laptop) or an IDE/SATA to USB Connection Cable to connect the Hard Drive to a 2nd Computer > Back up all important data to an external storage device.
Reinstall the hard drive into the laptop > insert the installation disk > install a Windows XP Disc > Boot from the CD > When you reach the 2nd repair screen, press R to Repair XP.
If you have a different Operating System follow the same process > select Start Up Repair (for Vista or Windows 7)
I hope this helps.
