    First thing to menttion is that your system is not up to date. SP2 is no longer supported by microsoft leaving your system wide open to attack. You may well have Malware. Switch on Automatic Updates to keep your system up to date and protected.

    As you have had to often reseat the hard drive I would suspect you have a bad connection on it. Is this a laptop or dektop PC?

    Even new hard drives can fail at an early age so it will be worthwhile running diagnostics on it. Follow the guide below.

    If the hard drive is failing it would be wise to use a USB adapter to connect it to another PC to retrieve all your important data.
