If I press F11, I get Gateway's System Recovery menu and it's got something that says "System Restore Options".
It has two choices: One is "Full System Restore (Distructive)" and it says "WARNING - This option will format your hard disk and reinstall all factory shipped files. Use this if all other options fail to restore the machine to a satisfactory condition. All your personal data files and applications will be lost."
The second choice is Full System Restore (with Backup) and says: This option will move all Hard Disk contents to the "c:\My Backup" directory and install a new copy of Windows. This option will preserve your existing data files, however all applications and settings will need to be reinstalled. This option requires 4GB of full Hard Disk space for the new OS."
Should I try the second option? Does that mean all of my files (like pictures, music) will still be on my computer?
Do you suggest I try one of the above before trying one of the NTLDR fixes?
Thanks for your help!

I have a 2006 Gateway with Windows XP (I don't know the exact model of my computer off the top of my head).
I'll go find the documentation for the computer and try it and see what happens!

Okay...the documentation should guide you through the process of restoring Windows. Please let us know what happens!

Well...try going to Control Panel > Power Management. There should be some option to enable standby and hibernation mode. Missing graphics drivers can also prevent you from entering standby or hibernation modes.
