Hi, I am running Windows XP Home SP3, 2.2Ghz processor and 1GB RAM, 80GB NTFS western digital hard drive in a Dell Desktop. Lately I am getting windows delayed write failed messages all the time. Mostly when I am on the internet using Firefox 3, downloading files or saving files. I do not have "enable write caching" activated. I installed Cacheman and I still get the problem. I found a registry change article at microsoft and tried this-

WORKAROUND
To work around this issue, increase the value for the page table entries. To do this, follow these steps.

Important This section, method, or task contains steps that tell you how to modify the registry. However, serious problems might occur if you modify the registry incorrectly. Therefore, make sure that you follow these steps carefully. For added protection, back up the registry before you modify it. Then, you can restore the registry if a problem occurs. For more information about how to back up and restore the registry, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
322756 (http://support.micro....com/kb/322756/) How to back up and restore the registry in Windows
1. Click Start, click Run, type regedit, and then click OK.
2. Locate the following registry key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management
3. In the details pane, right-click the SystemPages value, and then click Modify.
4. In the Value data box, type the following value, and then click OK:
FFFFFFFF
5. Exit Registry Editor.
Note The FFFFFFFF value is okay to use. However, a value that is more than the default value but less than the maximum value may provide better results.

Thanks

I tried a new defragmenter from Auslogics-
I downloaded and ran diskcheckup and all is OK as far as SMART report goes with my hard drive.
I get the following error message under computer management>event viewer>system

Hello,

Does this only happen in Firefox 3? Have you tried in IE just to make sure it was something with the PC not just Firefox? Could be a corrupted install of Firefox.

Cheers,
Mak

It could be a hardware issue - duff NIC or failing HDD - please backup your data!

I suggest running a disk test ; use any of these :

You can also run a scan disk for errors on it, and defrag it.

mirjel, Hard Disk checks should be done with the Utility made by the Hard Drive manufacturer.

wsx123, If you have checked what Makaveli213 said and it's not just firefox please tell us what manufacturer made your Hard Drive so we can point you to the right utility.

Hello Artellos,

I know that wsx123 have 80GB NTFS western digital hard drive (see its post). If wsx123 want to try any of these
like Data recovery, on the link http://www.datarecov...harddrives.aspx has utility for western digital.

I was referring to disk checking, not data recovery though.
Disk checking should always be done with the application made by the manufacturer.
I'm not familiar with data recovery as I've never done so before.
Just keep in mind that using Disk Checking utilities that are not made by the manufacturer might give false positives.

I have been using internet explorer 7 and getting fewer error messages. Most seem to be coming from Firefox 3 and Thunderbird. Also anything that saves a log file. I have run checkdisk and it returned no errors. Defraged hard drive also. Errors went down but have not gone away 100%-I think this is an SP3 issue???
I have an older western digital HD-did not find any disk checking from WD. Freeware scans show disk is OK.WD800BB-75CAAO is disk model number.

hello wsx123,

Please go to the link below and scan the disk with a diagnostics tool from Western digital.

I downloaded the western digital drive tools and it found some bad sectors that did not repair. I had Acronis True Image 11 installed and a USB backup hard drive.
I managed to clone my hard drive onto the new one, swap hard drives out, power up and reboot.
I now have my old PC back including operating system and files on my new hard drive.
Acronis is great!

Just proves that you should only scan the drive with the tools given by the hardware merchant.
Glad to know that you could back up your data.
