Windows 7: Resource Monitor Predicts computer will fail...?

Resource Monitor Predicts computer will fail...?

Hope everyone is having a great weekend !

Question about Windows Resource and Performance report that I ran earlier today. I've never used this tool or worked with the data results before, but if you look at my attached image you see that this gypsy software is predicting "MSStorage Driver - Predict Failure - TRUE.

And the other issue it had was that my volume was "dirty"

Any suggestions from anyone on whether or not I should start shopping for a new laptop or can I do something about this issue - or is it just some crap diagnostic that I shouldn't worry too much over?

Any advice is always appreciated. Take Care!
