Sounds like it is time to replace the hard drive. Download seatools for dos, make a bootable cd. Start the computer and let it boot to the diagnostic cd, you may have to change the boot order in the bios if you do not have a "startup menu" option. Do a quick gneric test if it fails, it's toast, if it passes do the long generic test, any fails mean replacement. Here is a link, the iso download is near the very bottom.
