There are a few things you can try.
Since the errors seem to indicate hardware you can make a bootable dvd (or USB) containing HD checking utilities from the HD mfr.
You can also (if a desktop) remove all the external (not essential) cards and devices
(ie USB, PCIE, etc)
Failing that you can use another live system disk (Linux, xp, vista, etc) to boot from and run the HD chceking.
That will tell you if it is the HD, an external card or device, or something else.
You can also on boot in win 7 hit shift +F10 to get you to a cmd window where you can run a system file check
Run a system file check to verify and repair your system files.
To do this type cmd in search, then right click to run as administrator, then
Read here for more information SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker
Let us know the results from the report at the end.
