If that is your case then it's very unlikely that you have a recovery partition on that pc any more. One of your options, you can go to the support area of the Gateway web site and see if you can purchase a set of recovery disks, That will put your pc to the day your first started it up. Of course they won't be free and you might have to cough up $20.- $30. For the disks and shipping/handling.
You can also download the Windows 7 .iso from Digital River, burn that to a dvd disk and then format and re-install windows. You will need to manually download and install all the necessary drivers from Gateway and any software will need to be manually installed too
(formatting your pc will remove all the existing data on the hard drive....use a low level format utility for better security)
