  1. Hi ,

    Recently I replaced the nx9010's Harddisk with Toshiba 80 GB HD. But it repeatedly give me errors/warnings "delayed write failed" Hence I'm unable to do installations of key softwares. When I checked on Microsoft website it says

    "Make sure that your UDMA hard disk controller is using an 80-wire, 40-pin cable. For information about how to do so, view the documentation that is included with your computer, or contact your UDMA hard disk controller manufacturer."

    How would I know whether its using 80wire 40 pin cable?I cold not find it in manuals.

    Also what could be the reason of this error? Is Hard Drive spoiled so soon? or it is incompatible?
