Hi Everyone I'm using a HP Pavilion Laptop (about 5 years old) and have just had a message pop up to say the above disk needs to be repaired or replaced. Can anyone tell me what this implies and is it a costly or reasonable price to repair/replace. Thanks

Firstly back up everything important off the disk.

If the laptop is 5 yrs old the drive should be easy to replace as it is probably under a flap on the base of the machine. It really depends on the exact model

Physically it looks easy to replace the drive. Buy a new drive - SSD preferably) and an external caddy. Clone the failing drive to the external drive. Search for free apps to do this - then swap drives.
