The message is letting you know that the HDD is failing. There is nothing you can do to fix the HDD itself. You can replace the HDD or return for warranty service. If the laptop is covered, then initiate a service return with Lenovo. They will take care of it. If they won't you may be able to RMA the drive directly with the harddrive manufacturer. Good luck!
