It sounds as if you hard drive has an error on it htat the chkdsk is finding. It is having trouble either writing over that area or fixing the problem. Try another HDD as this one might has some issues and could fail down the line.

Well if you just bought it get a RMA (Return Merchandise Authorization) and send it back and have Dell replace the HDD before it fails.

Not all new hardware is perfect and flawless. I have bought 2 HDD that were dead out of the package.

I would send it back. Ive seen plenty of new hardware fail. With hard drives they can last forever or die right from the start. You never know.
