Boot Problem with no recovery Disk.

Specs: Windows XP
So I have a Gateway NV79 and it shut down on it's own on me and then when I turned it back on Windows would not boot. It goes from the Gateway logo to a black screen with a white blinking dash in the top left corner. Before all of this I was watching TV Shows with TVDuck and I'm guessing I got a really bad virus? So if you have any clue on how I could fix this it would really be appreciated!

I've tried to start it in safe mode but F8 doesn't work and I tried to restore it to factory settings w/o a disk but it didn't work either. If you guys have a link to a recovery disk I can get for free it would help too! Thanks bunches guys in advance.
