Why my PC Freezes in every few minutes?

My PC freezes in every few minutes, stays like that for 2-3 seconds and then works fine again. The mouse cursor also do not move at that time. This happens in every 10-12 minutes. Does not matter what program I am using or watching movies this happens in every 10-12 minutes.

I have 2 operating system, Win 8.1 and Win 7. This problem happens in both operating system.

I have 2 Hard Disc, Samsung 500 GB Hard disc, Toshiba 1 TB. Both operating systems are in the 1 TB Hard disc.

I also got a "Windows Detected a hard Disc problem" in every few hours. The problem is in the Samsung HDD. I tried to run my PC without the Samsung 500 GB but the freeze problems still remains.

I have a and using this PC for around 5 years. Do I have to chage both my Hard Discs or any other Hardware? Please help me.

I have
Core i3, 2.93 GHz,
4GB DDR3 RAM
1500 GB Hard disc (1 TB + 500 GB)
1 GB Geforce GT 620 Graphics
