Hello,

The imminent drive failure notification is from the S.M.A.R.T. feature on your hard drive. It means your drive is not working according to specs. More that likely when you installed SP3 the drive was accesses more than normal and the controller electronics noticed the errors. The Hard drive can detect when it is operating out of the range that is ok. You need to backup your data and replace your hard drive as soon as possible to prevent data loss.

I hope this help, If so please rate my solution.

Is there any way to manually update windows 7?


Hello your computers homepage is here.

http://www.dell.com/support/drivers/us/en/19/Product/optiplex-745

Yes there is a way to upgrade (i guees you mean the sevice pack)

You can download the sp1 here:

http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=5842

But you have to know if your system is 32 or 64 bit.

If your system is 64 bit:

Download this file.

windows6.1-KB976932-X64.exe


And the 32 bit:

windows6.1-KB976932-X86.exe

When downloaded run the exe program

Then you forceing it to install the sevice pack.

A firewall/antivirus could be blocking so you can`t update the service pack. Try to set it off while you install sp1.
Remember to set it on again when the job is done.

Your Pc haves to restart many times after this.

Good luck

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.
