Sounds like bad sectors. You want to get a utility that writes 0's to your HDD. This will be a full wipe.

burn the ISO, insert disk, let it BOOT FROM CD, then choose to erase entire disk. It'll write 000000 accross the entire disk, including all boot sectors.

You then have a 100% blank disk

Seagate's included software has a low-level formatting (0-writing) option. It takes a looooooong time though, maybe 15 hours.
