Looks like you have a p4 478 socket with ddr memory bad luck they only make 478 boards with ddr2 memory now. And when ever the power supply is as old as the motherboard it should be replaced to. Here's the specs I found on your computer http://www.shopping.com/xPF-Gateway-830GM. You could always try your luck on ebay good luck.

I have an 830GM and am suspicious of a hard drive crash or a motherboard failure and was wondering how to diagnose?


try replacing or swapping the hard drive with another machine and see if it happens again and on which machine if both machine's crash both MB and HD could be bad, If your machine with different HD works fine then it most likely was the HD If not then the MB might be at fault

I have a Gateway 830GM, I was wondering if it were possible to change the motherboard so I could put a newer CPU in it? I would like to buy a core 2 duo motherboard + CPU but I am not sure if I can do that...


Desktop computer cases have standard mounting holes and screw stand offs.
There are a huge range of motherboards available, select well known brands, my favorite are Gigabyte, Intel and MSI.
Select a motherboard with the features you require. If you are into gaming, graphics/CAD then select a motherboard that does not have a built-in graphics chip, and then you can get a high end graphics card.

Most likely you need a CPU and RAM with your new motherboard.
You may also need a newer ATX2 power supply if not then check the total power requirements of the new system, it needs to be at least 10 to 15% over the total power requirements so you don't stress the switch mode power supply.

Network card gateway 830gm


Well, you most likely will have to replace the network card, as you already know.
If your network connection is part of the motherboard, disable that one and plug in a new network interface card.

They are fairly plug and play....
