Around 3 months ago whenever I would Start my computer I would get a hard disk error with the blue screen, i ran all the diagnostic options and everything passed, I kinda put it back cause I thought its not a big deal, last week it got so bad i couldn't boot into windows anymore, so i backed up everything and reinstalled windows with a USB drive, the problem was still there, so i figured my m.2 ssd needs to go , i purchased a 970 pro ssd and replaced it with the older one today , i cloned it so my windows would remain, i restarted my computer and the problem is still there with same exact error massage. Hard disk failure 3f5.
