First try chkdsk /f on all of your drives if no errors are found try to disable/enable the DMA66 setting with a program like TweakXP. If it still does not change anything try to update your mainboard drivers, VIA offers very good ones with their VIA4in1 drivers I don't know how good the support is with other chipsets.

Another idea could be to disable AGP Fast Writes in your bios.
