driving into problems, again?!

My second hard drive in 6 months appears to have developed issues. What should I be looking for?

A while ago I replaced the hard drive on my PC after serious issues booting up (Vista 64). Now the new one also appears to be having problems. Last night it would boot into safe mode, but just hung when booting normally. A disk check showed a bad cluster in emdmgmt.dll.
It appears to have booted up now. I dont know whether this is relevant but the disc also appears heavily fragmented.
Is it just coincidence that two drives have developed issues?
Could this be caused by some other component failing; the power supply or the ram (both of which are relatively elderly)?
