" No matter how gentle you might pick up the laptop the Hard drive has to reset its self. It seems to be a bit too sensitive & gives a warning saying the hard drive needs to be reset each time you touch the laptop. "

You can lower the sensitivity (or turn the feature off If you want to risk it) in the HDD protection settings menu (right click the icon in the task bar and click on HDD protection settings) and you can turn off the warning messages.
