First of all, Copy the files while you still can. This is a good time to look for a new hard drive. The longer that drive is powered the sooner it will fail.

I can not access my computer after imminent failure message


> imminent failure message ... cannot access

Bad luck that the 'imminent' failure was _SO_ soon followed by _complete_ failure.

Buy a new disk-drive. Disconnect the old disk-drive.
Install Windows to the new disk-drive.
Reconnect the old disk-drive, as a 'slave' disk-drive, and hope that you can access the files on it, even though you could no longer 'boot' Windows from it.

When I turn on my computer i get a message that says hard drive failure is imminent and it will not allow me turn it on


You're viewing that message because your hard drive needs to be replaced in your computer.

You'll need to take it to a local computer repair shop and tell them to replace your hard drive.

There is a message failure predicted on hard disk 4 warning: immediately back-up your data and replace your hard disk drive. a failure may be imminent press f1 to conntinue


Your hard drive is about to fail. You need to replace the hard drive and, if you have any data on your current one, you need to back it up immediately. Every minute your computer is turned on means that the hard drive could crash at any time.
