if the E partition is on the same physical drive as C, how do we know E is any healthier than C?

what kind of computer is this? did it come with a recovery partition or recovery discs? if not, do you have windows 7 install media?

The hard drive may not be faulty, you should download your hard drives manufacturer diagnostic software from their web site. If the hard drive is good then the fault could be that the format on the drive is bad in which case you will need to re format the drive or try CHKDSK /F or you have problem memory.
