i recommend running HDD check tools provided by HDD manufcturer. if pc can not boot you need to boot from other bootable media for example CD/dvd.. oh i think i dont need to say it but if you have any importand data please backup.

If error is saying disk problems there is chance your hdd is going to die.

The first thing I would do is run chkdsk (needs a reboot)

Hi Terry,

Once you are able to get into Windows again, please do the following:

1. Downlaod, install and run CrystalDiskInfo which will give us a health report on your disk. Post an image of the screen when it has run, and we can advise you further.

2. Open an elevated command prompt (cmd window) and type chkdsk /f and hit enter.
You will be prompted whether you wish to schedule a disk check at next startup - select YES and then reboot the machine. Tell us the results of the chkdsk once it has completed.

Regards,
Golden
