Good Evening, I have an old PC that I'm still trying to hold on to because of finances. I forgot to turn my PC off one day and returned home to a PC that would not come out of what I thought was sleep mode. I had to hard shut down and upon reboot received the message "Windows has encountered a problem communicating with a device connected to your computer................" which I'm sure you've seen before. After researching, the results were that it may be a dying or dead hard drive. Could that be the problem or some sort of virus? Thank you in advance for any feedback.
