@sgfinley -- can you remove the disk-drive, and connect it as a secondary disk-drive in some other computer? Then, download/install/run the free SPECCY software. Expand its "storage" section, and expand the "SMART" section. This section reports on the detailed "health" of the disk-drive. If you get "warnings", it is time to replace the disk-drive.
Or, if you have a "spare" disk-drive that is known to be in good condition, install it in your computer, and try to install Windows onto it. If it crashes, it could be a failing motherboard.
