Why are you looking for zebras? It appears there is a problem with your hard drive, doesn't it? Go to the website of your hd manufacturer and download and run the diagnostic utility for your hd. And be sure to follow the on-screen advice to backup any critical data immediately.

Your hard drive has SMART issues that is causing this message.  As Allan said, back up your important data and replace the drive.  This drive has both your C: and D: partitions so you could possibly lose everything on these drives.  The drive may last for years or fail in minutes, there is no way to be sure.
