Need to unlock gateway 7330GZ hdd
So who put the password on it? 99% of the time if there is a Hard Drive Password and the person in possession of the laptop don't know the password, the laptop is stolen. The original owner put the password lock on the hard drive to keep thieves from getting to sensitive data. The owner could have set the password remotely once the laptop was stolen. Your system is toast. The only remedy is to get the original owner to remove the password.

Program not responding
Have you considered doing a complete recovery of your operational system, I'am suggesting this because of the fact you have to many program conflicts due to device drivers that are not working properly.

Does it mean anything when the hard drive light is
I think that means its in sleep or hibernation or standby, sometimes mine doesn't come back up when i hit any key to wake it and i have to hold the power button down to shut it off and then turn it on again. I used to have windows xp and upgraded to windows 7 and haven't had the problem since. I don't think anything is breaking or broken I think it's just some sort of glitch in the software.

My hard drive access indicator
No offense, but Honestly that is to vague of a question. Those symptoms sound normal for a slow computer. You should consider how much you have to put towards upgrading your computer, if it is too slow for you. Taking your computer into a service center like geek squad or a local computer specialist would allow access to tools that are required to assess the underlying issue or performance.
Using online tools to identify computer issues is extremely dangerous to your data due to possibility of downloading malware and viruses if you are not familar with identifying risks.

Gateway MT3705 screen blinks on and off
Just a thought..
Grab the upper-right corner of the screen and wiggle it back and forth, like you do when you open it. If the screen blinks on and off, it could be that the screen is cracked from twisting it each time you open the laptop, or the ribbon cable could have a break in it.
