Have a look at this post and see if it applies at all. http://www.fixya.com/support/t1541373-gateway_gt4022_motherboard_failure Your problem sounds like one of the possible failure modes of bad capacitors. I had a ASRock mobo that worked great right after cap replacement. I gave up and got something else after the caps failed for the third time.
I think your hard drive may be getting bad sectors on them if its hanging on you frequently.

Save the important data that you need and then wipe out your drive and restore it back to factory defaults.

If its still hanging on you frequently, then at that point replace the hard drive and restore it back to factory defaults.

We've had a Gateway 816GM desktop for about 3-years and except for the usual PC problems it's been fairly reliable. However, in the last few days it started locking up, no video, then it starting hanging and finally it will now not boot up at all. The HD light on the front doesn't even light up. A friend did a quick look at it and suggested the motherboard was gone. I'm assuming if the hard drive was bad the computer would at least boot up, but I don't even get the start up screen or any
