What could be causing it???

    Failed hash check means you are downloading damaged data.

    use utorrent, it bans ppl who send bad pieces repeatedly.
    also, i'd skip that torrent, and look for it on another source.
    at that rate, u'll download about 3.5GB of bad data.

    By the time it downloaded 100 mb of corrupt data I would have complained a LOT on the tracker forum.

    Try installing a ipfilter list, you may be downloading from the "bad people".
