Shut down the computer and then hold Fn key and then press the power buttong which will take you to Pre Boot Assesment test so let the test run and if hard drive is failing it will give you an error.If you want to do extended test then once this PSA test is finished it will ask you wether you want to remaining memory test just say yes and after that run the extended test which test the computer components extensivly and by that you can make sure wether hard drive is fine or not.If everything passes then reisntall Operating system or if you want to try to repair then boot from vista dvd (if vista) and then choose option repair.Let me know if further help needed

This indicates a hard drive failure. Try reinstalling the operating system, if you have any problems during or after the reload, then the hard drive is bad and needs replaced.
