From some time now I'm getting error messages on the Event Log about my
disks. I'm not really sure if what I got is a controller problem or a disk
problem (or a "on-disk" controller board failing)
The error logs I get are as follow (listed in no particular order)
Source:disk - The driver detected a controller error on
Source:atapi - A parity error was detected on \Device\Ide\IdePort0.
Source:disk - An error was detected on device \Device\Harddisk0\DR0 during a
Source:atapi - The device, \Device\Ide\IdePort0, did not respond within the
Source:disk - The device, \Device\Harddisk0\DR0, has a bad block.
Note about the "bad block" message: I've got several of those at one time,
and disk access was a real pain at that particular time. A simple restart
cleared things, and that's making me suspect of the controller.
Now for the question:
- What does this looks like? Motherboard controller failure? Disk failure?
- How should I go about testing this? The simple "check disk" tool in
Windows 2000 did not found anything wrong with the disks.
Thanks in advance,
