Laptop Failing

Hello, I have a HP Compaq nx6125 , and ive had 3 hard drive failures this year so I am pretty mad... right now i have no OS installed, but it will not let me install one, when i boot up ( regardless of me having an XP/Vista disk in or not) I get this message on a blue screen:

STOP:c0000221 unknown hard error/system root/system32/ntdll.dll

Anybody help?

3 hard drive failures this year...

I would doubt that unless you have had them tested to confirm.
I would be more inclined to look at a more generic fault namely your ide ribbon cables, if these are damaged or the likes they will generate a similar error message...
