Here are the repeated error messages that show up in event viewer:

svchost (1461) An attempt to write the file "D:\WINDOWS\system32\CatRoot2\tmp.edb" at offset 8192 (0x000000000000200) for 1048576 (0x00100000) bytes failed with system error 1117 (0x0000045d): "The request could not be performed because of an I/O device error". The write operation will fail with error -1022 (0xfffffc02). If this error persists then the file may be damaged and may need to be restored from a previous backup.

An error was detected on device \Device\Harddisk0\D during a paging operation.

The device, \Device\Ide\IdePort2, did not respond within the timeout period.

I also get "Delayed Write Failed" pop ups, a yellow triangle with an exclamation point in the middle in the tasktray (If I click it, it will crash the computer), and the computer will sometimes hang at POST's "detecting IDE devices". I also randomly get blue screens.

I've formatted and reinstalled Windows in the past, but it always leads to future hard drive problems.

What usually happens is:

1. I turn the PC on, and it works perfectly.
2. After many hours, I start getting "Delayed write failed" or a blue screen. (forced to restart using the button on the case)
3. The computer hangs on detecting IDE devices. (I do another couple of restarts)
4. The computer finally makes it past that point and hangs at the blue Windows XP loading bar or displays a message about OS not found press ctrl + alt + del. (more restarts)
5. Windows takes me to an option page, and I choose "Last known good". (computer still hangs but sometimes boots)
6. I get annoyed and come back 10 - 15 min later, and it magically works again.

So, what's the problem? Overheating hdd? Bad IDE/SATA controller? Bad hdd? Something else? If I format and reinstall Windows, it will just get corrupt again.

have you tried running hard drive diagnostic software on it? you can usually find these at the manufacturs website.

It passes S.M.A.R.T when the PC is working, but the problem is, I can't test it when the problem is occurring since the PC won't boot.

the problem is indeed with the Hard drive. Try to do a total erase using a hard disk erasor like kill disk, and then reinstall the OS totally from scratch. If that doesn't work, then I think there might indeed be something wrong with the hard disk. I would also try another disk checking utility other then the S.M.A.R.T utility. its usually pretty good, but a second opinion is always good.
