Would have nothing to do with the beta expiring. Something is wrong with the hard drive. Either the MBR (Master Boot Record) is screwed up, or the hard drive is dying. Try installing Xubuntu 12.04 LTS 32 bit from a CD, and see if you still get problems with the drive. You can also use the Xubuntu CD as a LIve CD, to allow you to check S.M.A.R.T. info on the drive, to see if it is failing.

You may be able to. You can try and use the Xubuntu LiveCD, to attempt to pull any documents, photos, music, video off of the hard drive. If the drive is bad, Newegg.com is running a sale on 240gb SSD's right now.
