Found this in my Windows 7 Pro x64 computer:

 The first Critical Blacklist Event found: Event ID - 11 System log - Disk: The driver detected a controller error on \Device\Harddisk1\DR1.

This computer only has one hard drive C: which is showing up in Disk Manager as Disk 0.

Could this be caused by someone removing incorrectly a USB device?

Thanks in advance.
