I am going to assume that your drive is failing. What kind of drive is it?

You can go to Device Manager and it will be listed under Disk Drives.

Download this: http://support.wdc.com/product/download.as...=30&lang=en and use http://isorecorder.alexfeinman.com/W7.htm to burn it to a CD.

Okay, also ever since this started, disk checking, my microsoft office 2007 has not been starting something pops up saying BAD IMAGE and that it is either not designed to run on Windows or it contains an error. The problem I have is that I don't have the installation CD anymore. Is there anything I can do to get to work again?

You leave the CD in the drive and reboot the computer.
