Hello Christoph,

I think it is a hardware problem. I had a similar problem a year ago
with my Compaq Armada 1510. I ended with several damaged sectors
on the hard disk but it is still usable. The problem used to happen
when the disk tried to read certain sectors, in my case several
important sectors like parts of root inodes.

Blu Almanegra.
