  1. The drive may have been damaged. Install speedfan, HD Tune, or some other application that can read SMART values from your drive. If the reallocated sector count continues to rise, the drive is most likely damaged. Back it up while you can. If the drive is under warranty, you should be able to get a free replacement.

    If you go to "My Computer", right-click the drive, select properties then the tools tab. Hit the check now button. Check off both boxes, then the start button. If it asks to reboot or run at next start up, allow it to do so, then reboot if necessary. Hopefully this will fix some of your problems.
  2. On its own, "Reallocated Sectors" isn't a problem. It just means that the drive has some sectors that have deteriorated, but it was able to read them successfully and has moved them to some of its spare sectors instead.

    "Pending Reallocated Sectors" is where the real trouble lies. Those are sectors that the drive can't read at all - every time you try to access those sectors you'll get an I/O error.
