What problem did you have with your computer that prompted you to reinstall Windows ? That problem was probably hardware related, and a reinstall of Windows didn't help.

Sounds like your hard drive is beginning to fail. You can download a diagnostic from the site of whoever made the drive and that might tell you something. But if I were you I'd start looking for a new drive.
