Controller Problems??

I'm having a problem with the system freezing and the display blanking out and having to re-boot to get the monitor on. This happens sporadically, especially if I use PS6; but sometimes it just "plain happens". I go into Event Viewer right after boot up from these things and I get a group that of eight errors. 7 of them say: SOURCE-DISK message says "device detected a controller error on \DEVICE\HARDDISK0\D

Then one message says:SOURCE-ATAPI error message says: "A Parity error was detected on DEVICE\IDE\Ideport0

I have a AMD 750
VIA Chipset
196Meg RAM
20g HD running NTFS

Any clues? This is a brand new motherboard by the way.

Thanks

Kip

Looks like everything is fingering your hard-drive. Suggestion one is to get the latest bios flashed in. Suggestion two is to get all your really important stuff backed up - possible hard disk crash in your near future. After the back-up i'd get some drive diagnostic utilities and see if my drive was on it's last few spins or not.

BACK UP!!!!

Run a lowlevel scan on your HDD. If it survives, and seems fine then try updating your AMD chipset drivers. If you still XP-erience problems get an IDE/ATA addon card that has the WHQL (XP) approved sticker on it. They cost about 50 bucks.

Happy computing.;)

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
