Question about HP Pavilion zd7000 Notebook
This sounds like a heat issue. Strong processor + somewhat poorly placed intake + passive exhaust = really hot, really fast. Make sure the intake fans on the underside are working steadily, and either buy or improvise something that will give those intake fans a bit of breathing room, so to speak.
This could also mean the drive is failing. If you're feeling brave, try burning an Ubuntu linux cd (or some other linux flavor -- though ubuntu is probably the least intimidating) and try to boot to a 'live session'. You should get a menu to choose a language, then a menu that lets you 'try ubuntu without any change to your computer'. Pick that and let it go. It should boot into a 'live session'. Poke around in the menus at the top of the screen for 'Disk Utility'. It will let you do all kinds of stuff, including checking the overall health of the drive without breaking the bank for no good reason.
