It sounds like you have a bad hd. Take it back and tell them that you'd like to swap that hd for another one, and explain to them the problem you're having, and what you've tried to remedy the situation..
If you can temporarily afford it, go buy a hd, save the receipt, test it out on your computer, and if it works fine, then your hd from your new computer is probably bad.
As long as you save your receipt and have the original packaging (even the plastic), you can take your hd back within 30 days and get a refund.
There is a major department store that allows it, and I've done it on numerous occasions when I needed to troubleshoot problems I had on my computer. It will definitely save you a troubleshooting bill if you were thing of taking it in to a repair shop.
