Default PLease help Hard Drive Lagging !!!!

I've been experiencing this problem in the past but formatting hard drive and reinstalling windows xp home edition would solve the problem for a little while. What happens is when i click on "My computer" it would open the screen but will not show any drives the cursor would show that its trying to search for the drives and it would do it for about 5 minutes and then it would open normally. This issue also happens when i try to access any files on the drives from microsoft word or windows media player. BUt the computer is working fine with no problems. Can anyone help me with solving this issue thanks.
