Ok thanks guys will try all of those options. Especially changing/reconnecting the SATA cables first since I've heard of people having HDD problems with the cables to blame. But I'm still wondering whether its safe clone/mirror a drive thats kinda on the fritz?

Lets keep in simple Insanitic. DO your backups if their is data you want to save.
If you don't want to save anything then don't do the backups.
Then do what ever testing you want to do.
If you want to test the hard drive and all the cables that fine. You might find something.
How well a backup will be on a hard drive that is in question you won't know until you try.

My first understanding of your problem was the hard drive was physically shaking. Then you pointed out that wasn't so. That just all operation were shaking ie. video, sound, ect.
It still smells like a hard drive but it cost nothing to test it.

Its just that I have hundreds of programs and games that are mostly a pain to reinstall again and I just don't have the time with my job. So again, I'm wondering, will it be problem to mirror a drive that has bad sectors? I'm thankful for your suggestions, but I choose to mirror the drive.

Oh no layback bear, you're explanations are fine. You tell me to just backup the most important files instead of the whole drive since its more complicated. However, I want to do it my way, which is mirror the drive just because I have a lot of data and programs that are laborious to install.

Well you surly can do it as you choose but I would suggest you hold off a little longer. Others will be by to give you more information.
Mirroring is not always the best option.

What are the results of Seagate Seatools bootable CD long scan? This will tell you the condition of the HD.

If it passes test HD also with Disk Check.

If those absolve the HD then run through the other Troubleshooting Steps for Windows 7.

Oh yes, forgot to tell the status, it said the long generic test failed. I wasn't using Seatools dos though, but the windows version
