some questions about load cycle count

hi all
what happens if we stop the load cycle count?
is it ever possible to stop the load cycle count?
will this damage the hard disk?
How many cycles are accepted (normal periods) for a notebook?
mine is HP Pavilion dv6-2170

by the way I'm recording videos on my laptop by a dvb card. does this harm the hard drive?

load cycle count is specified for each hard disk. Mess with the count at your peril. The best you will manage is to convince some fool that your worn out disk is not so worn.
