    Every time i boot my computer i receive this message, after several restarts my system will load up the windows, n i can use my PC,,, n if i turn on the Pc after some hours same error message again.. have restart my system several times to get it work... What's the problem here... i think it's not hardware problem if it was it wouldn't have booted up my OS after several restarts... Is this something gotta do with registry, after messing with registry i have started to get this message, Is re-installing my Operating System only the solutions... help...

    Run, do not walk, to backing up all your important data to an external hard drive. Your internal hard drive is failing and it's just a matter of time (perhaps days or hours) before your PC never boots again with the drive. A new hard driver is definitely in your future.

    No! Copy the data off it NOW and then replace it. You have been warned.

    if u messed with the registry as u stated u probably corrupted the operating system so badly that all u can do is do a complete reinstall. thats why we dont advise anyone to use registry cleaners or touch the registry unless u really know what u are doing.the only time ive personally gotten that message is when ive switched hard drives from one laptop to another and of course i have to reinstall the system because its not reading the data from the computer it was in previously.as suggested i would certainly get any info u want to save such as documents, pix, etc onto another drive because its very possible the drive might be failing or has failed.hope this helps.
