"A disk read error occurred Press Ctrl + Alt + Del to restart"

My Sony Vaio Laptop occasionally goes to this disk error screen every now and then when I open my laptop from sleep mode, so I just restart the laptop. Its beginning to worry me, what should I be doing? I have all my work on there, and cannot send it off to get repaired right now due to workload. This has been happened in the past week

Not too long ago, my laptop had a crack behind the bottom left of my screen, near the bottom corner of the lid. Since then, every time I adjust the lid, there are static lines on the left side of my laptop screen and it gradually got worse. If I go to get my hard drive fixed or replaced by a local computer repair shop, would they also fix the crack? Also do you think this crack and static problem has something to do with the Hard Drive errors?

Here is some information on my laptop, I dont really know what type of info to send

Windows 7 Home Premium

System - Processor - Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-2450M CPU @ 2.50GHz 64-bit Operating System
