i suggest you fsck the partition in livecd. You could also grab the ultimate boot cd, it has drive testers from the main drive manufacturers and you can test it mechanically.

I think it is normal problem. Open your CPU and check whether SATA cables connected to the Hard disk properly.

Can you help with this problem?
