Looking at your Model No. I'm guessing you're in the UK - if that's correct, you can order a set of Recovery Discs using the following link.
However, it may be a good idea to run a test on the Hard Drive as detailed below.
Shut down the notebook. Tap away at the esc key as you start the notebook to enter the Start-up Menu. Select the Bios option ( usually f10 ) and under the Advanced or Diagnostic tab you should find the facility to run a test on the Hard Drive. Post back if you get any error messages.
