They tell me I need a white gateway recovery disk that has window xp restore cd media center 2005...if I can't what else can I do to get info on the hard drive?

I am having the same problem. Gateway said they no longer made the recovery media for MP6954.
Were you able to get the recovery media? Did you find out any resources where you could get the recovery media? Please let me know.

Go HERE and you should be able to decipher which drivers you need for your laptop.
Now as far as the OS you will have to do some work with that. On the bottom of the laptop should be a sticker with the OS originally installed on it and the registration key.
If that is there you could borrow a XP disk of the same type ...in your case XP Media Center 2005... Install with that disk and use your reg key. Then you will have to install the drivers from the page I just linked to.
Word to the wise...once you have all the correct drivers downloaded then burn them to a cd for future reference. :) :) :)
Let me know if this works out for you. :)
