What are you scanning it with? - Chkdsk?

yup with chkdsk .. the one in the properties of the hard disk ...

well, chkdsk runs in 2 ways, it either checks upon bootup (blue screen before windows starts) or itt runs in windows

Which one is it doing for you as if your Hard Disk is extremely bad, repairing it whule windows is running probably wont work

Also have you done a rootkit/virus/spyware scan?

Have you tried defragmenting it?

If these ideas dotn work check all the cables and connectors and if the HDD uses IDE make sure that it is is either on its own cable or that it is the first device on a cable and is set to master as doing something like having a DVD drive before the HDD makes wierd things such as thuis happen
