This warning is to let you know the hard drive may fail sometime in the near future so you should backup your data frequently.
When the hard drive eventually fails, you can replace the hard drive, re-install Windows, your programs and data.
The hard drive are devices that cannot be repaired, they are replaced.

Operating system not found on lenovo g550

Safe Mode may not work, because it does load drivers. Installing Vista onto itself should work. Boot with it and choose repair installation, if that does not work, do a clean install.

hello miss sally, hi, the operating system error may be caused by a faulty hard disk or hard disk connection cable, and the hanging thing is caused by a faulty memory module, so check then out first, swap a new memory module, and for your hard drive, take it out from your laptop and use a PC to test the drive (applicable only if your hard drive is sata.)

It appears your hard disk may failing. Back up your data while in safe mode. Then do an in-place operating system repair if you can. But if the hard drive is failing, it will need to be replaced.
