This is arturo, you might encounter a Controller failer which could be the motherboard IDE controller or is your hard drive circuit board I suggest to backup all your critical data before is to late.

Because next time may not want to bootup at all, another alternative is to replace the data cable that connect your hard drive to your motherboard and see if is the datacable is causing problem, if this doesn't work then replace it with a new hard drive it should have a guarantee, if still giving the same problem after replacing the new HD than is The Motherboard IDE Controller and you have to replace the whole motherboard, unless if you have an SECOND IDE CONTROLLER.
