Hey there! @Uscafarr5


Please share the product number of the PC and the exact error you get on the PC to assist you better.


The error may indicate that your Hard Drive is failing and needs to be replaced. Try reseating the hard drive on your PC and check if it helps.


Also, try updating the system diagnostics to the latest version.

Also, try performing a complete system reset.
