✔ Best Answer
You may need a new hard drive. Get a friend to test it for you with a bootable CD if you are not familiar with testing hard drives outside Windows.

You can test it with SeaTools for DOS. Download the CD Image from here:

Use ImgBurn to create the CD from the CD Image, then boot your PC from it:

You probably should test the memory as well to make sure it is not causing the problems. Use Memtest86 free edition:

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
