Sounds like you've got bad sectors. Do a surface scan with EaseUS Partition Master and then repartition the whole drive around the bad sectors.

Hmm, try running comprehensive test with Windows Diagnostic Tool found here:

If this one doesn't report any bad sectors than I'm afraid you're in for a HDD replacement.
