Q: All of a sudden when my computer starts up or powers down I get a screen that the bottom line states ‘primary master hard disk error’. What does that mean and why is this page starting up?

    I have never seen this before and searching really has not turned up much but I can tell you that you better make sure to backup all your data regularly just in case it is telling you that your hard drive is about to fail.
