    everytime i boot up my computer it says this:"1720 hard drive detects imminent failure" and it gives me these options f1 boot, f10 computer set-up. and then i press f1 to boot and everything works fine but is my hardrive gonna crash?

    Lonman Bleh!

    A crash is likely... one of these times you'll probably get the 'can't find disk or OS' message. You need to get the goodies backed up asap and go shopping.

    Do you have a Compaq by any chance?!?

    Get a new HD and use the utility that comes with it to copy your current drive to it...

    I suggest you copy important files, buy a new hard drive and then reinstall windows. It's your hard drives problem and you can't fix it. You should do it ASAP to avoid losing data you want to keep.
