You need a new hard drive. This error means your drive is on it's way out - it is not fixable, it can only be replaced. If I were you, I would copy as much data off the laptop as you can to either another computer or to an external drive as soon as possible and get the drive replaced now before it dies completely.
If you take it to a place that knows what it is doing, they could clone the disk to your replacement drive before it completely fails, but don't trust anyone to do this before taking a copy of all the data off yourself.
Ask yourself how much your photos, music, documents etc are worth to you!?!

If you want to save your data, start backing it up now!!!
That hard disk has detected bad sectors or other issues that is causing read, write or read/write failures.
The best thing to do if it's out of warranty is get a new hard disk and clone this drive to that one using a program like Acronis True Image.
Where you get the new hard disk will probably sell external enclosures or a USB adapter cable that you can use to have both hard disks hooked up at the same time to perform the drive cloning, or most computer shops if you are buying the drive from them will provide this service either free or for a modest fee.
Use the drive (meaning the laptop) as little as possible until you get a new drive into it.

Run CHKDSK/F straight away and back up your data.
Fit a new hard drive and format then install your OS on it. Install driver updates from hp.com and finally update windows.
Restore your data.

Is your hard drive a Hitachi/IBM? If yes, Compaqs are known for their notorious hatered toward IBM/Hitachi hard drives. It's a compatibility issue over a quarrel Compaq had with Hitachi during the late 1990es. Or you may really be dealing with a dying hard drive. In either case, you'll have to get a new hard drive... or a used one but DO NOT GET A HITACHI. Get a Seagate or Samsung. It would be best if you transfer all your critical data off the hard drive and dont use your computer untill you get a replacement hard drive.

Please ensure you backup your Hard drive and get a new hard drive ready for installation. Usually if you get a SMART error, you hard drive is about to fail or showing signs of failure.

Back up your data frequently as the hard drive will fail soon. When the hard drive fails you need to install a new one and install Windows on the new hard drive to get a fully functioning computer again.

Your S.M.A.R.T. is reading the attributes on your read only storage.

enter BIOS and under smart=disable
run a good diagnostic on the hard drive to determine any problems.
SMART just tells you of suspected problems or when things are beyond normal limits.
