I'm no expert, but I think your drive has had it!
You should probably replace the drive, and try to retrieve any data by
connecting it to a desktop machine (sometimes the error temporarily
"heals" itself for enough time to read the drive once or twice), then
move that data back onto your newly restored laptop.
