Windows 7: The disk may fail soon

Windows 64bit
The disk may fail soon

Hi all,

3 months ago i bought Lenovo v570c with Home Basic installed on it, yesterday he have started to lag very hard, so I decided to install Windows 7 Ultimate.

So I started the CD, booted it up, selected language, then selected Custom install, becouse I wanted to install fresh windows, and at the step where you have to select partition on which you want to install windows I saw an error which said:

"Windows cannot be installed to Disk 0 Partition 2" - I clicked on it and it said:

"Windows cannot be installed to this disk. The disk may fail soon. If other hard disks are not avaible, install windows to other location."

But I could launch windows 7 install, so yesterday I just installed it without any errors. So I installed drivers and all other things and it was loocking great , but i saw an icon in the right corner which said that Port 0 my fail soon, data is at risk. And I had decided to reinstall windows again, at the same step, same error.

Anyone knows what to do? Or should I just ignore this error?

Sorry for my bad english.

Thank you for your help

It sounds like your hard drive is failing. Reinstalling Windows repeated is not going to fix anything. It will probably just make it fail quicker. If there is any data on the hard drive that is not backed up, back it up now. If you bought the computer new you might be able to get a new hard drive under warranty, or you can just buy one. Any SATA laptop hard drive should work. To test the drive to confirm that it is failing, you can download Seatools for Windows, which you can use to run a number of tests. If any of the tests fail, it is time to get a new hard drive.

If Windows istelling you that thedisk may fail soon, the disk is going to fail soon. As Petey7 said, back up any important data, before the drive fails.
