Question about Gateway Computers & Internet
Sounds like you have a damaged restore disk. Look at it under a bright light, and see if there are any scratches in the disk. You might be able to clean the disk (always clean from the inside out, never in a circle).

Tips for a great answer:
Im not sure which file you are referring to but you could just a repair of the installation
this is fot the master boot record
if there are any other files , settings or programs during the repair process options for these should be available
Insert your Windows XP installation CD or recovery disc, and restart the computer.
Instead of attempting to boot Windows as it normally would, the computer will give you an option to boot from the CD.
Press a key when prompted, then wait for the setup program to load.
Press the "R" key on the "Welcome to Setup" screen.
This will cause the CD to launch the Recovery Console instead of attempting to install Windows XP on your computer.
If you have an administrator password on your copy of XP, then you will need to enter it in order to log in to the Recovery Console.
Choose the installation of Windows XP that you want to repair (generally the only option). Wait for the command prompt to appear, then enter "fixmbr." Press "y" when prompted to let the FixMBR utility overwrite the corrupted bootloader with a new copy.
Remove your XP disc or recovery disc, then type "exit" into the command prompt.
The exit command should cause the computer to reboot, allowing the computer to load the new bootloader file and then continue Windows XP startup as normal.
Hope this helps
