Default Input/output error yet again

So I posted about it here a few months ago, here I am again.

My issue is: my computer can for a few weeks or 1 month+ run fine, then all of sudden everything starts freezing, FireFox hangs every 5 minutes, opening any program takes ages if it opens at all, turning the PC on/off takes longer than usual. I also sometimes get this input/output error either at startup, or when trying to run some programs like BitTorrent, etc. That, or "disk read error" at startup. So something like this lasts for a few days, then it's back to normal.

So it kind of baffles me, because if my HDD was busted or if I had a virus or something then wouldn't it be acting up ALL the time, not once every few weeks? It's really starting to piss me off >_>

Hai:

Spoiler!


The only thing I noticed is that the "Ultra DMA CRC Error Count" has been rising since a while ago. It always rises quite drastically during those "episodes" I mentioned. When I checked the internet for what might be causing this, though, I found so many possible causes I had no idea which direction to go >_>
