Rather new laptop with Disc failure mesage

My laptop is rather new (only 4 months and few hours per day) and suddenly it showed up a message with "imminet hard disc failure" before the boot. Is that a configuration problem or machine mal-function? I had to press F1 to proceed. I did the back-up but I wouldn't like to lose my notebook in the way it is.

Some problems started after installing Adobe Photoshop for japanese system and my laptop is American. I'm using a Sony Vaio with Windows 7 64bit, 4Gb RAM, 500Gb memory.

Wouldn't want to think its a HDD failure but precautionally, run the chkdsk utility to rule out HDD failure.

Blu-ray discs all of the sudden incompatible and won't play


Look for a firmware upgrade for your player. They exist for sole purpose of increasing compatibility with newer blu ray releases. If that does not do the trick it appears that your player's laser assembly is losing its ability to focus on the disk(s). Repair is not cost effective and you will have to go shopping.

Error Msg: A disk read error occured.


WEll i don't know how they fixed it before but if you get a disc read error then it's a bad hard drive. They may have gotten it to read again but it's still a bad hard drive and needs to be replaced and a new one put in. Don't know if they charged you for a bad hard drive before but it doesn't sound like they replaced it. Get a new drive and re-install your operating system and it should be fine.

ERROR MESSAGE: E61:00


I borrowed my friend's video camera and this message came up on the third day of our vacation. I started freaking out. I came here for solutions. I tried gently smacking it, but the error code still came up. We fixed it though. All you have to do is open the door to where the tape goes in, and blow in it. When you do this, the error code goes away and a new message comes up. Something about moisture in it. Take the battery out now. Put it back in afetr half an hour and the thing will work perfectly.
