If you want to save your data, start backing it up now!!!
That hard disk has detected bad sectors or other issues that is causing read, write or read/write failures.
The best thing to do if it's out of warranty is get a new hard disk and clone this drive to that one using a program like Acronis True Image.
Where you get the new hard disk will probably sell external enclosures or a USB adapter cable that you can use to have both hard disks hooked up at the same time to perform the drive cloning, or most computer shops if you are buying the drive from them will provide this service either free or for a modest fee.
Use the drive (meaning the laptop) as little as possible until you get a new drive into it.

Run CHKDSK/F straight away and back up your data.
Fit a new hard drive and format then install your OS on it. Install driver updates from hp.com and finally update windows.
Restore your data.

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.

Back up your data frequently as the hard drive will fail soon. When the hard drive fails you need to install a new one and install Windows on the new hard drive to get a fully functioning computer again.
