Sounds like it could be dead/dying. – random Aug 27 '09 at 7:07
How old is your notebook? – Randell Aug 27 '09 at 7:16

Yes, it sounds like the drive is on its way out. These are relatively cheap to replace so why not try replacing it?

Time to buy a replacement drive, perhaps?

@TomWijsman: On the contrary - the answer "buy a replacement" is a legitimate solution to the questioner's problem with a failing drive. Comments are intended for clarification, not giving answers. – Kramii Aug 9 '12 at 12:53
