The message from diagnostics "disk-generic-_multi-card-target not ready' means that there wasn't a card in the card reader while those diagnostics was running.  I suggest running HDD diagnostics.  Start the system tapping F12, allow the PSA to run and once completed choose to run hardware diagnostics. On the 32 bit hardware diagnostics screen choose custom and then hard drive .  If you dont get any errors then this is likely only a Windows corruption issue.  You may need to reimage the system but at least hardware wont need to be replaced.
