Hi all,
yesterday i started having some issues with my computer,it rebooted with no reason and when i went to check to event viewer i found many events of this type ....... An error was detected on device \Device\Harddisk0\D during a paging operation. and A parity error was detected on \Device\Ide\IdePort0. . I recently change my HDD cause i had problems with the previous one and i purchase a Western Digital 320 GB HDD (8MB Cache, 7200 rpm, IDE, WD3200AAJB
At this momment i am perfoming a diagnostic for my HDD by i thought i could use some advise from experts too

My computer is an Intel Pentium 4 at 3.2 Ghz
1.00 GB ram and yesterday i updated to Windows XP profesional SP 3


Thanx in advance for any advices

You only have 1 hard drive installed?

I find it hard to believe that Windows will find disk errors which go unnoticed by the hard drive manufacturer's diagnostic.

Have you checked the connections to the drive?

Is the jumper properly set?

I thought so that if diagnostic hasn't found anything then i should replace my connections so i got a new data cable and so far so good,no restarts.Lets hope it was just the data cable cause i used it from my old hard drive.

I'll inform you if anything happens.Thanks for the fast reply and keep the good work guys

Ps: yes i have only 1 hard drive installed at the momment.
