While a SMART failure doesn't always mean a hard drive failure is imminent, combined with the symptoms you describe you're likely running on borrowed time.
Install new hard drive, reinstall Windows using your Gateway disc.
Installing a new hard drive on a notebook is generally very easy. However, if you have any questions, let us know.
P.S. Most OEM hard drives are only warranted for a year, but you might want to check it. Once you have it removed, enter the serial number at the mfgs website to learn the warranty info.
