Hard Drive and Windows 7...

Okay, so my computer, when I turn it on, it said cannot detect windows 7 or whatever, and it made me retype the authentication key. Should I be worried and get a new hard drive, or was it just a small bug?

My Specs:
Intel core i7 2700k
Nvidia gtx 560 ti
16 gb of ram
1 Terrabyte Storage
Antec Green 650 watt psu
MSi Z77A-G45

Notes:
Case is Black NZXT Phantom 410 Mid-tower
3 in-take fans
3 exhaust fans
Cpu cooler is Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus

    You have to validate the software usually done online. Did you do this? After re-entering the key is everything OK or does it reoccur? Was this a new installation/ upgrade or an issue with a previously working system? This sounds like a software issue not a hardware one. So no for now don't worry and keep the hard drive you have. A bit more info. will help to understand and resolve the issue. Tks.
