You can try file recovery programs like Recuva and Pc Inspector, it would be preferable not to install anything onto the hard drive, if you can hook the hard drive up to another computer to do the recovery would be best. However, if that is not an option you work with what you have, they are small program installations anyway. The mass storage driver and other drivers can be downloaded off Gateway's support sight. It may be a separate driver or part of the chipset driver.
