Monthly Searches: 12,100
Error Type: Boot
Appearance: Boot error message

This error commonly appears during the boot process and is usually caused by a misconfigured BIOS setting.

If this is already your primary drive, then you may want to repair your Windows boot files by using a repair disc or the startup repair tool. If the issue persists after these changes, then try to reconnect the primary hard disk by opening up your computer and clearing the connections of any dust that you find. As a last resort, try to reinstall Windows on your primary hard drive. If the install fails for some reason, then it’s an indication that your hard disk is failing or faulty and should be replaced.
