The error you mention would indicate that your Hard Drive is failing and will need to be replaced.
The first thing you should do is to make a back-up of all your personal files etc as soon as you can.
If your notebook is under warranty,you will need to contact HP and arrange to have the drive replaced.
If you live in the US, contact HP Here.
If you are in another part of the world, start Here.
If you're out of warranty and would like a guide on replacing this yourself, please let me know.

Thanks for reply to posting, not sure if notebook is under warranty, had it for about 10 months. Will look in to it and consider options, but probably my last hp.
