Test the hard drive to see if it has mechanical errors which are not repairable. You will need to test it with diagnostic software which runs from a bootable CD because you can't test the system drive with Windows software.

I recommend you use HGST Drive Fitness Test for DOS. Download the CD Image from here and make a CD from it:

Now boot your PC from that CD and the Drive Fitness Test will appear on the screen.

To Stop Error Checking from running at startup.
If you have drive C: as your hard drive, then the command to disable chkdsk from scanning C: drive would be:
chkntfs /x c:
If you have 2 drive, C and D, you can disable chkdsk with the command below
chkntfs /x c: d:
First click Start> Run> bring up a command prompt by typing in "CMD" and type " fsutil dirty query d: ". This queries the drive, and more than likely it will tell you that it is dirty. Next, type (Copy and Paste) CHKNTFS /X D: The X tells Windows to NOT check that particular drive on the next reboot. At this time, manually reboot your computer, it should not do a Chkdsk and take you directly to Windows.
