Any onscreen error messages?

You can always run a hard drive diagnostic to check the functionality of the drive.

I would run the long generic test...depending on size of hard drive, should take 2-3 hours to complete.

Diagnosing Hard drive is important but before that try this: First login to your administrator account and boot your PC in safe mode. Remember that when you pursue in boot mode then select ‘safe mode with networking option’ under ‘advanced boot options screen’. Also after booting, set your PC in clean boot state. It will surely help you to identify third party tools which are causing problems.
