ok one of the pop up says" the system has detected a problem with one or more installed IDE/SATA hard disks. It is recommended that you restart the system". another one says "Damaged hard drive clusters detected. Private data is at risk" another one says "Ram memory usage is critically high.Ram memory failure". and another says "hard drive critical error.Run a system diagnostic utility to check your hard drive."

I hope that helps those are the messages i keep getting and also when Windows 7 restore under that it said 11 errors detected!

Could be this, IMO:

What this infection does: Windows 7 Recovery is a fake computer analysis and optimization program that displays fake information in order to scare you into believing that there is an issue with your computer. Windows 7 Recovery is installed via Trojans that display false error messages and security warnings on the infected computer. These messages will state that there is something wrong with your computer's hard drive and then suggests that you download and install a program that can fix the problem. When you click on of these alerts, Windows 7 Recovery will automatically be downloaded and installed onto your computer.

Once installed, Windows 7 Recovery will be configured to start automatically when you login to Windows. Once started, it will display numerous error messages when you attempt to launch programs or delete files. Windows 7 Recovery will then prompt you to scan your computer, which will then find a variety of errors that it states it cannot fix until you purchase the program. When you use the so-called defragment tool it will state that it needs to run in Safe Mode and then show a fake Safe Mode background that pretends to defrag your computer. As this program is a scam do not be scared into purchasing the program when you see its alerts

System manufacturer and model?

Does the system currently boot into Windows properly?

If so...have you tried running the chkdsk /r command?

http://www.hard-drive-help.com/chkdsk.html , follow the proceure under Starting Check Disk and check both boxes/options.

Louis

Prior to doing the above...please remove and then reconnect both connections to the hard drive.
