My HP Pavilion was used as a server before we got it.
The slave drive seems to be failing as I get a message
saying that a failure is eminent. I have to F1 on start up.
Can I disable the D drive or do I have to fiscally remove it.
I get a "Windows Delayed Write Failed" message if it sits idle for half an hour or so.
We don't use the drive, but it is the larger of the two so it would be nice to save it if possible.
I googled the failure and was advised by Billy Gates to amend the registry.
You can call me a cluebie, but the registry is sort of like my wifes purse, I don't go into that !
Thank you in advance
