I have the late 2011 unibody 17" macbook pro.  I've been having an issue where when I close programs or even sometime on startup the computer locks up, sometimes a blue screen with flash for a moment. I can move the the mouse around but nothing is clickable and my batter icon disappears. I have been thinking that might be the hard drive that needs replacing. Do you all agree? Does anyone have a suggestion on brand or model of a hard drive? I have good luck with external western digitals and seagates.

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.8), 4gb ram, 2.2 ghz intel i7
