error 1782 ''disk controller failure'' HP Compaq nc6120

Hello there,
I have experienced a strange error when booting my HP Compaq nc6120: first the display went blue with the following message "the hard disk bay has been locked, introduce hard disk bay password", as I didn't know the password (should there be one) I tried to reboot the computer a couple of times and then got the error 1782 "disk controller failure". The stupid thing is that it remained like that for a couple of days and then I was miraculously fine...
Does anyone know what the problem might be?
Is it the BIOS or really the hard drive?
How can I fix it?

Try a BIOS upgrade.
Did you possibly undock the computer during hibernation?
did you unplug an external USB HDD during hibernation?
