Diagnosis when turned on

Oct 18, 2016 1:55AM PDT

Anytime I turn on my computer, I have this massage on a blue screen that says "hard disk error, please run the hard disk test in the system diagnostics."
I've taken all tests and my computer passed them all. And yet, any time I turn it on, I have to go through that process.
What should I do?
Thanks

That could be a predictive failure.

While it may help to know make and model of everything, there is a high chance it's the early warning system called SMART. For that you replace the drive.

Running the diagnostics does NOT fix SMART errors. It only confirms the failure and even then some diagnostics report in a way that is not plain English.

How about a web Speccy as it includes the SMART report?

My pc past those tests, and works properly, the problem is that it wants to diagnose itself everytime I turn it on...

And without the Speccy sharing the SMART values.

I can't see why it's complaining.

What do you mean it passed the tests? Those smart values are something I have to read up on and make a choice to continue or not. Since you didn't share the results I can't look at a reason why.

If you feel this product (PC) is defective then you have to deal with its maker.
