Started about a week ago. Screen goes blank for a few seconds, screen returns and the message above popped up. Some days, it only happens once or twice, on others, it can happen a good 3-4 times in the span of an hour.

Anyhow, this is my speccy analysis. http://speccy.piriform.com/results/SjBT4E8gTcJWjdnVIzNiwr6

My computer is a Dell Inspiron 1545. Thanks a lot for the help. Cheers.

Do you experience any shutdowns possibly to any thermal or heating problems prior?

C5 Current Pending Sector Count: 200 (200) Data 0000000002

Run a diagnostic test for the drive and use the short and extended tests. Backup your drives at any rate.

Thanks for the reply. I've not had any thermal/heating problems prior to this.

Sorry if this seems a little stupid but which drive do I run a diagnostic test on? Additionally, what should I be looking for in the test? Cheers.

Check your laptop for any BIOS utility diagnostic feature and run the short and extended test. Any errors found could mean the drive is failing. If it happens that there is no such diagnostic utility, download a Windows mode version(If Windows is still bootable) or the DOS version which you would need to create a bootable ISO file from WD. http://support.wdc.com/product/download.asp?groupid=606&sid=3
