I agree with Servo - it is very likely that your hard drive has a
serious problem and may need replacement.
Go to the hard drive manufacturer's web site and download their
diagnostic testing utility (free). Use it to check out your drive.
If that test indicates that there are serious problems with your drive
then you need to take *immediate* action to replace the drive.
Otherwise you run the risk of losing all of your data.
