I'm having several bbs's/day on a Compaq Presario 2100...mainly event 9, source 'atapi.' The bbs reads as such (relevant info only): The main event I get is 9, source 'atapi': I also got about 15 event 1003's simultaneously last night, although this one isn't as important to me since this is the first time it has happened and I think the former error is causing all the crashes: Going on instructions from the MS troubleshooting guides, I set the transfer modes of both IDE channels, primary and secondary, devices 1 AND 0, to 'pio only,' although I'm still getting the problem. I also updated my NIC driver and tried using Everest to test a temperature problem but all it showed was the temp, not if it was too high (63 C). I've attached my minidumps from this morning and yesterday, as well as a system report from Everest. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
