Default bad drive symptoms?

I have an IBM deskstar GXP75 - supposed to be one of the bad ones, but
it's worked fine for me for 7 years on my dvr computer.

I've recently had all sorts of weirdness on this machine. Video
drivers not there on one boot, then there the next. USB network
adapter not recognized on reboot, then I move it to another slot, and
it works till the next reboot, when I have to move it again.

Windows disk scan says no errors, no bad sectors. But I don't know
what else it could be.

Could this be caused by bad sectors in the C: partition? Or is it
more likely to be a motherboard on the way out? I have an up-to-date
virus scanner which reveals no problems.
