Driver detected a controller error
Posted on 2014-04-02
Windows 8.1 on HP desktop. This is an Event Viewer warning which I cannot resolve. "Driver detected a controller error on \device\harddisk5\DR5". There are four of these warnings associated with different harddiskX. Upon looking at the DiskManagement view, I see my 3 physical drives which are a 240 GB SSD with 2 partition (system and the OS), a 1 TB drive and a 600 GB drive which has 3 partitions. The latter drive is not being used and was originally a drive on which the OS was stored.
There are 4 other drives shown in Disk Management. Example... Disk 3 (I) removable with no media and the same for Disk X (Y) removable with no media. I cannot remove these drives. I'm guessing that the warnings are associated with these drives but do not know for sure. Can someone shed some light on this for me? I have updated the MSI MoBo with any outstanding updates but this did not fix the problem.
