Windows 7 - Windows detected a hard disk problem error
Posted on 2010-11-07
I have a client who has a 8 month old PC. It has Windows 7 on it.
Twice he has suffered a power failure at home and after the power come back up, when Windows boots up it comes up with the "Windows has detected a hard disk problem. You should backup............" message.
I am wondering if this is actually a hard drive hardware problem or whether this is more the fact that the power cut out that the computer may think it is a hard drive problem but it was the fact the power cut out.
It happened about 3 months ago on his computer. I went over and looked at it and the computer was running fine. There has been no issues on the computer until the other day when there was another power cut and the message came up again!
