Doesn't hurt to check the ram (first thing I always do as a faulty stick of ram or slot can cause serious headaches and can be fairly common)..
If it passes a few hrs of testing the ram then I would suggest getting your hands on another HDD (blank and verified as working) and load up win 7...
try it out and see if it fixes the issue.. if not then it's not the disk (but may be a controller, port or cable), if it does then it's probably the disk and you will need to contact your retailer.
or try your disk in a different pc (wipe it and load windows again see if you have the same problem)
System spec's and settings may help some..
Faulty ram = corrupt files = corrupt OS installation = Broken system
My System Specs
Gigabyte P67 UD3 B3
i5 2500K (Stock)
