It looks like that your hard-drive has failed and you need a new one. Has your laptop got any warranty left on it?

You'll need to replace your HD. You can take it to a shop or google the make and model of the PC + replace Hard Drive to find a replacement, even a video to see how its done. We can help you if we have the make and model number.

You can use the HD maker's HD Diagnostic extended CD scan to attempt to repair the HD, however it can never be fully trusted again and could fail at any time if it is generating the SMART warning you are seeing. I would use its remaining life to rescue any files you need.

Everything you need to attempt to rescue your files then Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 is in the blue link.
