This doesnt look like a OS error,probably a harddrive issue

Open command prompt and run this

chkdsk and press enter

Does windows finds any problems?bad sectors?

http://download.sysinternals.com/Files/ProcessExplorer.zip

Download and launch it

On top you have ''system interrupts''

Check its ''CPU usage'' column

Does it take higher amount?

Are you using a SATA or IDE drive

If it is a SATA drive ignore the following steps

If it is IDE ,then try to change from PIO to DMA mode

Right-click on "Computer" and click on "Manage"
Click on "Device Manager"
Expand IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers
Right-click on any label where "Channel" Click on Properties
Go to the Advanced Settings tab, under Device Properties check "Enable DMA"

Now in

Event level>>>Check mark ''error and '' critical

go to Event id and type this

Scroll down and click ok

Do you find any errors
