Hmm, well I'd back up everything, do a full format like Ketxxx suggested, and then see what happens. If you can get a blank disk I'd still suggest running the Hitachi HDD diagnostic test, just for good measure. The Hitachi test is also good at repairing bad sectors too, if any are present.

You want this image: http://www.softpedia.com/progDownload/Ultimate-Boot-CD-Download-5992.html

Burn that to CD, then when you boot press F2 to access Hard Disk Tools. Then you'll press right arrow to scroll to he next page, the Hitachi diagnostic is the first test on that page. I think you press F2 to access it, but it will tell you on screen.

Once that starts loading, just follow the on screen instructions. You'll select "just ATA support" when it asks if you want to load SCSI drivers. Then select the drive you want to scan and select "advanced test." It will do a full surface/media scan.

Hope that all makes sense.
