If you could post a pic of disk management, right click on computer icon, manage and disk management and take a snap shot with the snipping tool, then post using this icon
That will enable us to have a look at the drive layout, also could you please give us a bit more info as to what steps you are taking to backup the laptop.

Sounds like you drive is failing? Is that why you are replacing it? Try running CHKDSK /R from a command prompt. You can also try to use Ghost's option to ignore bad sectors.
