Error with hard disk controller
Explanation: The system has detected a failure related to the IDE hard disk controller. The controller is a separate I/O card that plugs into the motherboard on older systems. Newer PCs have the controller built into the motherboard.
Diagnosis: This is usually a problem related to the hard disk controller, of course, but it could also be the hard disk(s) themselves.
