Question Gateway Laptop Boot-Disk?

I was recently given an old Gateway Solo P120MHZ laptop with i believe used to run Windows '95. These days it doesn't boot-up and when it tries to, the message "HARD DISK BOOT SECTOR INVALID" pops up. If you press "H" like it asks the same message pops up again. If you press any other key another message reads, "FLOPPY DISK FAULT-INSERT VALID BOOT DISK AND PRESS ANY KEY". There is no disk in the drive and i do not have the boot-disk that came with the computer, what can i do to get this monster up and running again???
