@nukeit , welcome to the forum.


This error message is telling you that you have a failed hard drive.  The only way to correct the problem is replace the hard drive.  If you haven't made a backup of your personal data you will not be able to recover it.


You say the laptop is less than a year old.  If so, it should still be covered by the warranty.  It will replace the drive, but can't replace the data, unfortunately!


For future reference, when requesting help you should always include the Product Number of the computer and/or monitor. This information is necessary for us to review the specifications of them.
