I'm hopin someone can help me as i've come to a standstill with this. I'm currently trying to sort out a friends pc as she has been, occassionally, getting the BSOD on her pc, with an error message that it's dumping physical memory. I've cleaned up the pc running antivirus,spybot and adaware and i've also run CHKDSK and defragged. I've also checked out the Error messages in Administrative tools and these are the errors.
The driver detected controller error on device \Harddisk0\D
A parity error was detected on \Device\Ide\Ide port 1
An error was detected on device \Device\Harddisk0\D during paging operation.
I could'nt restore the system to before the trouble started.....
I've opened up the case and found that the hard drive is on a sata cable and the dvdrom is connected to the motherboard with an Ide cable..
Could this be the problem????
Also when i boot the pc up the harddrive reads as Primary Slave and the dvdrom as 3rd Slave.
The hard drive is a Seagate and according to there website this particular harddrive (sata) does'nt have jumpers.
I'm hoping one of you guys can help me with this...................... thanks in advance Roz
