If the problem is malware or hardware...a repair install probably won't solve it.
Lsass.exe is (normally) a valid XP file, depending on location and size. In other instances, it can be a malware item.
Normal file location (within the used operating system) is C:\Windows\System32 folder.
Backup copies may be stored in Service Pack files and C:\Windows\System32\dllcache.
My files are all 13KB in size.
If you are having hardware problems...that needs to be addressed immediately.
Although you indicate that you think the hard drive is the source of noise from the system...what would make you not think it's the optical drive you stated that you had problems with? Or some other hardware item?
The parameters you quoted for the error message...can have many different causes.
In any case, since you suspect the hard drive...I suggest moving your valued files from it...and then running the appropriate manufacturer's diagnostic on the drive.

You can always try recovery software, if you like.
Of course, nothing is guaranteed.
There are free versions, there are paid versions of such.

If you do any research on recovery programs...you will see that it doesn't matter one bit...if the suspect hard drive is capable of booting. The recovery software is contained on a CD and detects/accesses the suspect drive from the CD.
If the drive can be read by the CD, files may be capable of being recovered. If the drive cannot be read, life goes on.
