i started my pc and the option to start recovery and the option to boot from cd showed up, but then when i restarted it so i could go into recovery the option isnt there, not even the option to boot from cd. normally when i start my pc i see the gateway logo, then the option to start recovery or boot from cd, then the option to load win xp or win7, but now it skips the second part and goes from the gateway logo straight to win xp or win 7. wdf? i need to recover xp cuz when i start xp the whole screen is at the top of my monitor... i can see a little green strip of my background on the very top of the monitor and i can see the mouse moving at the top but thats it so i have to use the recover option when i start the pc

Go into bios, set the boot order to boot from the CD, put in Win XP disc and profit?
