My Gateway NV53 recently died, I took it to a repair shop and i was told I need a new harddrive and need to get the factory recovery disc to get my laptop up and running. I'm doing my repairs myself, I know how to install a harddrive, I want to know if the factory recovery disc contains the operating system (windows 7)? Can I just install a new 500gb harddrive and get the recovery disc, pop it in and be good to go? I would contact gateway directly but, somehow they don't seem to have a technical support number it's some third party number.

You should be able to get everything as it was on first boot, after you're done with the recovery disc.
