    Hard drive error detected


    hey all,

    i recently started seeing the attached error message- i'm guessing that this is a hardware failure and not a Windows/software issue that can be corrected somehow?

    just want to confirm before i start the process of replacing the hard drive.

    i'm using Windows 8 Professional 64 bit.

    thanks!

    Welcome to EightForums.

    I would backup & replace the HDD.

    But you can check the hard drive with the manufacturer's diagnostic tools.
