VidWe keep getting the BSOD when we turn on the computer. It says can't "mount Boot" I'm assuming it's a hard drive problem. Can we fix this without replacing our HD?

Start it up with a CD, try to format the drive.
Try run chkdsk first, If it fails will need to be replaced.

Gateway MT6840 unexpectedly shut down and wouldn't


First - re-seat the hard disk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot and go into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If it doesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty.
Then the hard drive needs to be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer or laptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioning computer/laptop again.
