Go to the hard drive manufacturer's website and download their hard drive diagnostics iso; the main manufacturers have diagnostic utilities on their websites. Burn the iso to a CD-R and boot of the CD-R. Run the diagnostics in thorough mode; it will take several hours to run.

Those type of error messages could indicate a hard drive that is starting to fail. The diagnostic utilities should be able to detect any potential problems with the hard drive. You probably want to back up any data on that drive as well.
