Hi there.
The hard drive is on its way out and at some point its going to need replacing.
If the problem is intermittent and you can still get it to boot into windows i would suggest you back up all your data (pics,docs etc) to an external drive or to CD/DVD before you loose everything.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!
Make sure everything is pushed in and attached correctly. It sounds like the hard drive could be loose or something.
