The Hard disk drive got too hot after a while of running Ubuntu. I've checked the system monitor and there weren't any thing strange.
I have Packard Bell EasyNote TJ75 with ATI card 512MB core i5.

Good you have the same problem. Try these
make the changes as follow:
#SATA aggressive link power management (ALPM):
Here is my example:

Reboot the machine for all changes to take effect.
Do this you HDD will cool down. :)
It may be that the hard drive is dying, I worked in a computer repair store and the general point of no return is when you touch the drive and practically burn yourself, I would reccomend getting a new hard drive ASAP, @Ethan Turkeltaub, It is very rare for a hard drive to overheat enough to be noticed just because of the way the computer is designed, if such were the case, then the drive would die within a year of being new, just from excessive heat!!
