Default Re: My hard drive might be dying. I need to verify

Controller error usually points to a bad controller on the motherboard, unfortunately... Could also be the controller on the disk itself. Is this a custom built system, or a store-bought system?

Laptop: MSI GT70 2OC-059us | i7-4700MQ | 16GB | GTX 770m | 500GB SSD / 750GB HDD | 17.3" | Win10 Pro
Desktop: 4690k | 12GB g.Skill RipJaws | GTX 970 | 520hx | Z87X-UD4H | Corsair Vengeance C70 | Corsair H110 | Acer 25" | Acer 22" | Win10
Mobile: Samsung Galaxy Note 5
