I copied the ISO image to a CD and then rebooted the computer with the CD. But it gave me the same black and white text at the beginning with the 'AHCI Port 1 Device Error' message and saying to hit F1 to continue. I hit F1 and the computer stared normally. The Port 1 Device is the CD-ROM, so I guess it does not read the CD.

What do you suggest I do?

Can you go to START>>All Programs>>Accessories>>> Right click on Command Prompt and choose to "Run as Administrator"
At the prompt, copy and paste the folllowing command, then hit Enter on your keyboard

chkdsk C: > C:\chkdsksave.txt

Let this finish, it may take some time
When done, post back the contents of C:\chkdsksave.txt
If the contents of chkdsksave.txt is not at 100 percent, close it and let it finish

The 'How To' article mentions these five tests:
  • Short Drive Self Test (20 to 90 seconds long)
  • Long Drive Self Test (may take up to 4 hours, progress in 10% increments)
  • Drive Information
  • Short Generic
  • Long Generic (progress in 1% increments)
Would you like me to run both the short and both the long tests?

As each of the two long tests takes considerable amount of time, I will run them at night and let you know.

As an aside, other than the nuisance of the 'Windows detected a hard disk' message that pops up every five minutes, the computer is actually working quite fast. However, it is slower than before on restarts. It also works jerkily now and then, but only for a minute or so, as if starting a new process. After restart too, it takes a few minutes to come to full speed. So it would be good to know what is failing inside. Thank you for all your help.
