Windows 7 Ultimate RTM (Technet)

If it's telling you there's a hard disk problem, then here's a clue...LOL. You have a hard disk problem. Get a new hard drive or you're wasting your time.

1. Downlaod, install and run CrystalDiskInfo which will give us a health report on your disk. Post an image of the screen when it has run, and we can advise you further.

2. Open an elevated command prompt (cmd window) and type chkdsk /f and hit enter.
You will be prompted whether you wish to schedule a disk check at next startup - select YES and then reboot the machine. Tell us the results of the chkdsk once it has completed.

Be careful installing tries to install SweetIM, which is known spyware.

I agree. The laptop is telling you exactly what is wrong, likely from the S.M.A.R.T. feature of the drive. The very first thing you should do is back up your data. Then you can worry about running diags on the drive.
