    I keep getting this popup when using my laptop?The laptop seems to be running fine.About 2 weeks ago the hard drive failed and i returned it to best buy and they replaced the hard drive with a new one and now im getting this popup,could this hard drive also be failing?I thought maybe it was a fake popup and did some scans with hitman pro,mbam & emsisoft but nothing was found.

    hp laptop
    windows 8.1 64 bit

    Check the disk with Hard Disk Sentinel or a similar program, and/or with the disk manufacturer´s test software.

    It's probably a legitimate message. See for example hxxp://www.ittwist.com/2013/02/windows-detected-hard-disk-problem.html.
