I’ve read many topics about this message but couldn’t find a similar case to mine.
My laptop randomly shows the BSOD with "critical process died" message.
When it trying to restart, after this message, it seems like the HDD is not detected, because it tries to boot from other drives and sometimes shows this message “A disk read error occurred, Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart”
When I go to the BIOS, most of the time I find that the HDD is not detected (but sometimes it’s detected and shown in the BIOS but the laptop doesn’t restart)
I tried loading the default settings in BIOS, but unsuccessfully.
I took the drive and plugged it to another computer via a USB adapter as an external drive; it works properly!
After some time (it varies from an hour to 3 or 4 hours) the laptop runs normally again and there is no specific reason for this behaviour!!.
This happens randomly with no previous sign, nearly once or twice a week.
I am really confused, because i don’t know what to do, so please help me.
I bought the laptop since 5 months, and this problem started to occur since more than one month.
