If so right click on it and select uninstall.
If not try pluging it in to a different USB port.

WHen I look it up on device manager under usb ports there is an "unknown device". I have tried uninstalling it and rebooting, but nothing has changed.

Return it to Gateway for repair.
Take it to a local, reputable repair shop.
I think you're down to a defective Power Supply or System Board.
Restoring the laptop to it's factory state as you did would have resolved any software/operating system problems.

System board = mother board.
$400 is a bit high, $250 to $300 sounds more likely to me, but you should be able to get a complete price from any shop you take it to before allowing them to touch it. If they say it depends then go somewhere else.
I'd ask for a price for replacing the PSU, one for replacing the mother board and perhaps one for doing both at the same time.
