The driver detected a controller error on \Device\Ide\IdePort1.
Uninstall the drivers, it will be automatically reinstalled.
  1. Boot into Safe Mode
  2. Right click on "my computer" icon and click "manage" on the context menu.
  3. It will open the "computer management" window.
  4. Select "Device Manager" in the left pane, It will list all the existing devices up.
  5. Expand "IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers" by clicking on the triangle in front of it.
  6. Select one item under it, right click, uninstall.
  7. Continue the process for all items under "IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers"
  8. Now restart the computer. At restart, windows will auto configure the appropriate system driver.
Sometimes it might be happened due to a rootkit/malware, faking as "ataport.sys". It is a new build, but still, dont leave a chance. Scan the system for possible virus infection.
Let us know the results.
