You have to go to system settings back up your stuff on memory stick(If you want to keep it). Then you go to format utility then chose quick format.

Cyclic redundancy check

A cyclic redundancy check error on a hard disk means that part of a file read from the hard disk doesn't match the expected value.
A cyclic redundancy check error, in other words, means that files on your hard drive are corrupted.
Repair a cyclic redundancy check error on a hard disk using the Check Disk tool in Windows.

Click "Start" and click "Computer."
Right-click the hard disk with the cyclic redundancy check error under "Hard Disk Drives" and click "Properties."
Click the "Tools" tab at the top of the hard disk "Properties" window.
Click "Check Now" under "Error Checking."
Select "Automatically Fix File System Errors" and "Scan for and Attempt Recovery of Bad Sectors" in the "Check Disk" window by clicking each option if it isn't already selected.
Start a disk check and repair by clicking "Start" in the "Check Disk" window.
Click "Yes" if the "Do you want to schedule the disk check to occur the next time you restart the computer?" prompt appears.
A disk can't be checked if it's in use, so you'll need to restart Windows to check it.
Restart your computer by clicking "Start," clicking the arrow icon to the right of "Shut Down" and clicking "Restart."
(External drives will not schedule to happen on restart it will happen straight away.)

Sounds like you may have a corrupted/failing hard drive. If you have access to another hard drive, you can install another hard drive and install your OS and see if you still have the restarting problem.

How do i format the seagate 5400 160 gig hard drive?

Configuring the BIOS
After completing the drive installation, restart your computer. Your computer
may automatically detect your new drive. If your computer does not
automatically detect your new drive, follow the steps below.
1. Restart your computer. While the computer restarts, run the system
setup program (sometimes called BIOS or CMOS setup). This is usually
done by pressing a special key, such as DELETE, ESC, or F1 during
the startup process.
2. Within the system setup program, instruct the system to auto detect
your new drive.
3. Save the settings and exit the setup program.
When your computer restarts, it should recognize your new drive.
