This question was answered on August 6, 2004. Much of the information contained herein may have changed since posting.

This error usually means that your pc hard drive is going to fail or it has already done so Which leaves you with two options, change the damaged drive for a new one or wait until the main hard drive has failed you.

Usually it your mother board detecting a problem in the hardware there is something called smart driver feature built in to your motherboard hard drive which detect serious problems with you hard drive and try to give you a heads up to the problem.

If your drive hasn’t failed you, try backing up your most important data and do it soon And get a replacement drive..

I hope that answerd your question Good luck
