Hi all, when checking the event viewer I have a warning that the "driver disabled the write cache on device \Device\Harddisk2\DR5". This message appears every time after I boot up. Do you know what this might be attributed to and how I might resolve it? The other day when opening Outlook Express, XP just rebooted and stated it just recovered from a critical error. Does the same when playing games sometimes too. I don't know if the message and the actions are related but I thought I'd just add that info. I checked Windows' knowledge base but to no avail. I have a 40 G HD an 8 G partition and seperate 8 G Quantum HD. Can anyone help? Thanks in advance.
