WIndows 2000 hardware or software error?

I am having a serious problem with my Windows 2000 laptop. Every now and then, it just won't start... it goes to a red dialog box before loading Windows stating: Hard drive not installed, reinstall operating system.
I am unable to reload anything because it will not boot even to a command prompt. When I unplug it for a good while and restart it again (plugged-in) it starts fine.
Sometimes, I get a STOP ERROR:
KERNEL STACK INPAGE ERROR 0X00000077
and occassionally, this ERROR:
0200: Fail fixed disk.
But, when I wait again to replug and restart it, it starts fine. The laptop is in very good condition. I just recently gave it all of the Windows updates and ran Norton System Utilities completely without any error messages.
I hate to think that this is a real laptop hardware issue with the motherboard, circuitry or BUS. Any ideas of what this could be?:confused:

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
