    Is this the disk you replaced with a SSD on your wife laptop?

    There are two kinds of disk problems:
    - Logical - Check disk can normally fix
    - Hardware - no way to fix it

    If you don't have anything (data) to retrieve from the disk, my suggestion is to open disk manager (C:\Windows\System32\diskmgmt.msc) and delete all partitions then create a new, format as NTFS.
    Then run SeaTool extended test. Leave it running. It will take a long time. You don't need to be near by. Go to do something else.
