Stop error and more

My friend has a Dell Dimension 4550 Pentium 4 running Windows XP. He is getting a couple of error messages when he starts his computer.

He first gets the following stop error:0x00000007e (0xc00000005, 0x805f5896, 0xf9ca591c, 0xf9ca5618)

He then has to manually shut down his computer and he gets the following message: Dell disk monitoring system has detected that Drive 0 on the primary EIDE controller is operating outside of normal specifications. It is advisable to immediately back up your data and replaced your hard drive.

Strike F1 key to continue or press F2 2 run Setup

When he presses F1 the computer boots normally.

Any suggestions other than replacing the hard drive?
