Not sure i understand your words used to describe the Hard Drive. Possible could be issue with it failing if i am correct on understanding what you mean. Make and model of this PC can also help us more, to help you.


Also which Operating system.


Try this to determine if Hard Drvie is so failing     at an Administrator Command Prompt copy and paste this exactly         chkdsk c: /f /r

Take an hour or more to run, can post results here using this


1. Press the Windows + R keys to open the Run dialog, type powershell.exe, and press Enter.

2. In PowerShell, copy and paste the command below, and press Enter.

get-winevent -FilterHashTable @{logname="Application"; id="1001"}| ?{$_.providername –match "wininit"} | fl timecreated, message | out-file Desktop\CHKDSKResults.txt

3. You will now have a CHKDSKResults.txt file created on your desktop that is the log file of your chkdsk scan results from Event Viewer.
