I posted this a long time ago and never got a solution cause I was too busy to deal with it. I actually found a solution but what I understand is, the problem will come back and I am wondering how I figure out why the problem is happening and fix that so it does not keep happening. This is the forum that discussed the solution. I changed my HDD to DMA mode cause it automatically changed to PIO mode. What I am assuming is that it changed to PIO and that is when my problems began. I changed it and it is now fine. What has caused it to change. I know it is not as simple as that, but how do I figure out what is causing this?

Hello raidencmc,

The problem can happen for a number of reasons, such as incorrect BIOS settings, damaged connections, failing hardware, damaged block on the drive, drivers failing etc.

here is a good article on the problem.
Regards,

Alan.

Is there anyway I can troubleshoot it? Thanks for the reply I know it has been a while.

As far as I'm aware there is no way of troubleshooting the problem, just every now and then uninstall the driver and let it install itself again. I've had this problem before and was due to a damaged HDD, I remember prior to the problem developing that the event viewer kept on showing disk errors.

If the event viewer is clean then most likely the problem shouldn't occur.
Regards,

Alan.

When the system changes from DMA to PIO mode, it's because it finds that there's too many errors in DMA mode - so it forces the change back to PIO mode.

The fixes would include checking your hard drive, cables, disk controller, and motherboard for defects. The first step (IMO) would be to run a diagnostic on your hard drive. There are links to the most common one's in this topic: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/28744/hard-drive-installation-and-diagnostic-tools/
