At least I know;
Window Xp Sp2
Around 30GB HDD
Its CD.

That's it.
First, Can we assume that this is a laptop? if so then it has a decal on the bottom of the machine with the manufacturer and model number. That would help
in figuring out what you need to do to solve your problem.,

I suggest that you go to and download all the proper drivers
if your going to do a re-install of xp.

eMachines Support - Downloads & Support Documents - Desktop / T Series / T2890

is the site (you do know that gateway and emachines are the same, or almost)

your can also go their help section where they tell you how to re-install the os

eMachines Support - Answers, E-Mail, Chat - How do I reinstall the Operating System on my computer?

To start the system recovery:
  1. Restart the computer.
  2. When the eMachines logo appears on the screen, press the Alt and F10 keys repeatedly.
  3. If you are prompted with a Microsoft Windows boot screen, press the Enter key.
  4. After the system recovery application has loaded, follow the prompts to reinstall the Operating System.
Remember Google is your friend.. :)
