Lately my HD has been making a lot of noise during simple tasks. Lots of HD chatter, almost sounds like its defragging itself ALL the time. Obviously this isnt normal so I went into Disk Utility and tried to "Verify Disk". I got this error message:

And it wont let me repair the disk. Any ideas on what that means or how to fix it?

I think you better start backing up!

Backup, and if you have Applecare - get to an Apple Store and have them look at it, because sometimes they can save it before it ****s the bed.

yea my girlfriends powerbook had a similar problem - backup what you can, sounds like the hard drive is about to die. we replaced the hard drive and everything is working fine again.
