Geekman thats not the problem. This issue is usually due to a Hitachi hard disk and the firmware needs to be updated. Please goto hp.com and type in your laptop it will bring you to the correct firmware update. I will agree with you on the backup part this should be a normal practice.

If you have overclocked the computer then put everything back to standard, that can do it. Try reinstalling windows, and when asked repair the windows already installed. That will reverse any windows data corruption. Remove and reconnect the hard drive data cable, a loose connection can cause a SMART alarm. Download seatools and run the long test, it is a better way of checking if the alarm is correct. Switch the computer off for an hour, sometimes the SMART test just goofs off for no reason. Only then do you **** your underwear and buy a new hard drive.

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.
