    Windows 7 was correctly displaying a message that

    "Windows detected a hard disk problem"
    "Back up your files immediately to prevent information loss".

    I was then given this option later:
    "Don't ask me about this problem again (not recommended)."

    Since I ran utilities that showed Windows was right,I chose the option to not ask
    me about this problem again.

    As that may have been unwise at the time, I would like to undo that step
    and have Windows ask me anout this problem again. How do
    I restore receiving the "Windows detected a hard disk problem" message?

    The only way I know how is to use System Restore (NOT A FULL RESTORE), to roll back to a date prior to you making the change. It will affect any programs or Windows updates installed since, so you may want to remove those first, and then reinstall them after the System Restore has completed; check out this reference:

    Hope this helps, best regards
