Hello,

 

I have a problem with my laptop. It usually stays on.  Tonight when I lifted the screen to do some work I saw a windows message that said something like "Windows has detected a harddisk problem"  Your disk may be close to failing.  Please back up your disk.  Something like that.  When I rebooted, windows would start then go to startup repair.  In startup repair it tells me " A hard disk problem is preventing Windows from Starting. Startup repair says it cannot repair this computer automatically.  The problem details are:

Problem Event Name: StarupRepariOffline

Problem signature 01: 6.1.7600.16385

Problem Signature 02: 6.1.7600.16385

Problem Signature 03: unknown

Problem Signature 04: 37  (this changes with each reboot)

Problem Signature 05: AutoFailover

Problem Signature 06: 1

Problem Signature 07: BadDisk

OS Version: 6.1.7600.2.0.0.256.1

Locale ID: 1033

 

Privacy Statement stuff

 

Any help would be appreciated

You can download and run the diagnostic utility from your hd manufacturer, but in the end I think the error message you are getting is pretty self explanatory. It sounds as though your hd is shot.

K, thanks.  However, when the message first showed up while the computer was running, I could access all windows programs without issue and write/read from the drive.

 

In command prompt, I can see all the data on the drive and chkdisk shows the drive contents are in good shape.  The problem reared its ugly head when I tried to reboot.  From what I've read on the forum, this issue possibly could be related to an infection or HIVE issue.

As I said, you can download and run the diagnostic from the hd manufacturer. If that doesn't show any problems you can run full scans with both your installed anti virus app as well as MalwareBytes.

Thanks, I'll first give that a try.
