"Restart to repair drive errors" keep showing up

Well, thanks, this is what I suspected too, a bogus error message.

I clearly saw this message the first time when I booted up Windows 8.1 after installing and using Windows 7. I installed Windows 7 only for the evaluation period anyway to troubleshoot some software. I'll just finish troubleshooting, delete the Windows 7 partition and see if I am still getting this message. If yes, I'll just disable this feature, I have Hard Disk Sentinel on Windows 8.1 anyway.

Thanks again!

    Some of the hardware might seem odd (PSU, SSD), but I'm not wasting money on replacing perfectly functional hardware only because a newer version is out. Nor am I willing to pay extortion money for replacements or intended upgrades (GPU, RAM), especially if that "upgrade" has a hardware design flaw (CPU).
