try disconnect the HDD and run test/scan (scandisk /r or seatool, etc) from other comp...

Unplug everything from the computer except keyboard, mouse, monitor, power cord (Desktops) or AC Adapter (Laptops) and see if issue continues.

I would recommend creating a Hirens Boot CD and utilize some of the options available to attempt to resolve your issue. There are some nice HDD detection tools that will help isolate the issue.

run scandisk in windows run or command prompt: "chkdsk /r (intended drive letter:)" in another computer.... if the drive still detected in another computer...

if it not detected or there a bad sector after scandisk than it time to claim warranty
