Question about HP Pavilion dv9000z Notebook
If at boot your system automatically launches a scandisk to repair problems with the file structure, that is a pretty reliable indication that the HDD is failing.
The errors with WIndows are caused by the files needed being located in sectors of the hard drive that can no longer be read.
The most likely resolution is replacing the HDD and reloading Windows and the drivers.
You can try booting to the XP CD, and go to recovery console and RUN CHKDSK /F but I'm pretty sure it will come back with unrecoverable errors and you still replace the HDD.
