it happens on post or only in windows?
reseat ide & power cables
the drive might be fautly , i suggest youll connect it to another pc
to know for sure

if it happens only in windows, it might be caused by a trojan..,i suggest youll do the folowing:

1) scan on these sites

2) download ewido anti-malware & signatures updates
install & restart , press F8 just before windows loads and select "safe mode" , run ewido and do a scan

3) download hijackthis
click "do a system scan and save a logfile" , open a new thread at the hijackthis forum copy & paste
