Driver detected a controller error

Asked By 70 points N/A Posted on -


I have an Acer Aspire E1-531 and I consistently receiving an error stating "Driver detected a controller error on DeviceHarddisk2DR2" when I am trying to shut down my PC. The error is stopping my Windows 10 from shutting down properly and I need to force close it to get rid of the error. I have an internal hard disk and two external hard disks. One of my external hard disk has a Windows which I bought to extend the disk space. Please tell me if this will help as the error is kind of annoying now. I really want to fix this ASAP. So can someone help?
