Hi,

Your disk might having problem. Better backing up your application to the external drive.

You can test your drive by attach it to different computer (you may need converter for this). If still having the same problem then it is time to get new disk. If not then maybe something wrong with the mother board of your laptop.

Run the HD manufacturer's diagnostic utility on the HD. You'll find the tool on the UBCD:

if it is really  a controller error, it can be a bad motherboard also
you can check if it boots normally from a live cd -  and can access the disk :

"Controller error" is distinct from "bad block detected."  This error indicates that the drive controller itself is failing.  Unfortunately, on a laptop there is no resolution for this problem except to replace the motherboard.

check if it made a minidump - and post it (look in windows\minidumps)
if it is not set to make minidumps, enable it : go to device manager\advanced tab\restart settings
