hi I have a gateway netbook lt series no cd rom drive, the problem is my son got a virus I think hen all of a sudden when ever you try to turn the computer on it starts to boot with the gateway sign then goes black I can get to the part where I can change the start up order I have tried numerous different routes with that, nothing I even took the hard drive ou and put it into another laptop with cd rom tried a cd restore cd from a toshiba tried to start that way nothing tried he toshiba hard drive in the gateway and that worked fine so i am sure it is the hard drive but is the hard drive just keeps saying no operating system found what can i do do i have to buy a new vista disk or can i somehow get a restore disk with the operating system on it? and then switch it back to the toshiba and use the disk that way?

out of ideas

There is no reason to expect a boot drive from a Gateway...to work properly in a Toshiba...or vice versa. Two different system manufacturers, two different sets of drivers/settings, two different motherboards/CPUs.
