    For the laptop... try blowing out any dust or blockage. Check that the fan, if you have one, is working and there is adequate airflow.
    If cleaning out the laptop does not give the desired results; you may want to test it in your desktop, where it can breath, to see if the temps do decrease.

    Also, what was the ambient temp where you are located during the laptop's test?

    As for the HDD in the PC (desktop, I am guessing).
    Backup you data, now.
    Get a replacement and/or RMA the HDD, if still under warranty.
    It could go for years or die on you in a second; depends on what caused the errors.
    You can use some monitoring software (such as your HD Tune Pro) to see if the errors increase.

    You need to back up, now, any data you want to keep.
    Run a check disk on the drive.
    Check windows error logs to see if Windows is having any troubles with the drive or associated systems.
    Try changing your data cable.
    Run the DFT (Drive Fitness Test) from HGST (Hitachi).

    Below is a quote from a troubleshooting guide at HGST(hitachi):
    But, my guess is the drive is starting to fail. You might want to think about getting a replacement as soon as possible.
