    Did you recently upgrade to XP?
    Do you use a fast harddisk with still the old 40-wire flat cable instead of the newer 80-wire ones?

    The wires are much finer, but this will be difficult to judge unless you have a 40 wire to compare. However the 80 wire jobs have a blue connector at the motherboard end and a grey and a black connector for the devices.

    No, the old 40 wires is 2 times slower than 80 wires. grab those 80 wires IDE cable for around 10 dollars or less.

    The main cause for your PC's error is having the wrong or a faulty IDE-cable.
