I would recommend backing up all of the data on that HD, just in case.
Definetly Back it up and wait to see what happens is what i would do..
I had a similar problem when i built my Athlon Xp build.. i bought a Segate Sata 160 gig with it and about 3 months after the build it started making wierd noises, like it was shutting off making a thud and spinning back up, started to get worse resulting in windows not booting. When i did get it to post however it would Lock up soon after... Turns out it was my PSU 350 watt, that was surging power. That same hard drive still runs Windows Xp on my sig rig surprisingly!
