UPS clicking -- 3rd slave hard disk error press F1 to resume

When I recently started my computer I often get my UPS clicking and then "3rd slave hard disk error press F1 to resume." Earlier the start-up would often take 30 minutes and the operation of the computer would often be very slow. At that time three hard drives showed in speccy and crystaldiskinfo as being "good." The problem seemed to go away for a couple of days but only the two hard drives below showed. The start-up problem resumed this morning -- still only two hard drives showing. This time when I got the UPS clicking I turned off the computer and turned it on until I didn't get clicking or the error message. The computer is operational but not fully back to normal. What would you suggest?

:welcome:   freeme88,


You have replies to the same OP on at least one other forum.



We are always happy to help when we can but we cannot safely do so if you are already receiving assistance on any other forum, doing so may lead to confusion as to whose and what guidance you are following which can be both dangerous and costly, decide on which forum you wish to continue and as a courtesy let the other/s know that assistance is no longer required.
Thank you for your understanding.
Edit to add: Member has not replied here but has to their duplicated OP on another forum, thread closed to avoid any possible conflicting guidance being offered.
