How can you tell what is corrupting your hard drive?

Try running chkdsk to see if you have any bad sectors. Hopefully this utlilty can fix them as well if any are found.

So how do I know if my hard drive is just bad, or if my motherboard is corrupting my hard drive, or my RAM is corrupting my hard drive, or if there is just a bad slot on my motherboard, or my PCI bus is/was too high?

Only way to tell what the problem is is to test with different components really. If you've got another HDD, try that first as it seems to most likely cause.
