I managed to run chkdsk and it fixed some errors. Afterwords I ran Es-Tool but all it does is random surface scans I don't think it fixes any of the errors. As soon as it started getting the error I hit esc to exit. When I rebooted it gave me hard disk failure.

Not sure what to do at this point...chkdsk ran twice and fixed most of the errors but obviously something is still wrong.

Rerun chkdsk /r until it doesn't find or fix any problems.

This is really starting to sound like a bad hard drive.

(see the pictures for more hard drive questions, DIY data recovery HD workbench read the same)harddrive.JPG

I downloaded both DIY data recovery HD workbench and Active to test after getting this information. The pictures pretty much paint the story I am getting.

If the hard drive was indeed failing wouldn't both of these pictures show errors instead of OK down the board?

I ran the samsung diagnostic software and it came up error free. I am assuming the freezing of the game was causing the crashes because non of the logs show bad sectors. And all the information from Active Smart is registering as okay! I will keep monitoring this but I am guessing in the end it was the game that was causing all those headaches.

Click the Start and then Right click My Computer
Select Manage and In the Computer Management window, select Device Manager
In the right pane, click to expand IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers
The click on the + sign next to your CD/DVD drive controller which will most likely be the Secondary Controller
Right click on the drive and select Properties
Click the Advanced Settings tab
In the Transfer Mode box that represents your CD/DVD drive (typically Device 1); open the dropdown menu and select PIO Only
Click OK and exit all windows
Reboot to make sure all settings take affect and then try your cdrom drive. Reply back with your results






For HD only



Let's make sure all drives are using DMA mode

Click the Start and then Right click My Computer
Select Manage and In the Computer Management window, select Device Manager
In the right pane, click to expand IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers
The click on the + sign next to your Hard drive controllers on both the Primary Controller and Secondary Controller
Right click on the drive and select Properties
Click the Advanced Settings tab
In the Transfer Mode box open the drop down menu and select DMA if available
Redo the steps to check each of the Controllers
Click OK and exit all windows
Reboot to make sure all settings take affect. Reply back with your results

The device 0 was set correctly. Device two was set incorrectly for DMA. I changed the value and restarted and the cd rom works fine.

Come to think of it though for some reason my cdrom no longer autoplays any cd's I put it in. Not sure why but it happened a while back.

Other than that no errors in the log so far.

Thanks for all your help! You really have been my savior through this and I know it was very frustrating.

I appreciate the kind words but I hate to lose so frustrating is something I seldom get.

How is the drive booting now since that was the original issue we started with some 50 posts back. :)

The hard drive has had no boot failures or disk errors so far. I am going to continue to run it and hopefully nothing else takes place.

**sigh** I am thinking the only way I might be able to get this to end is to either reformat the drive or just buy a new hard drive.

These errors caused no crashes or blue screens which is a plus but it bothers me that there are so many of them back to back.

thanks as always!

Crazy question also but I just went into device manager because I was reading this online:
http://www.hardwarea...ic/12946/?o=620

and I noticed that the primary IDE Channel has DMA for both device 0 and 1.

Secondary IDE channel has DMA for device 0 and PIO for device 1.

Is this right?

Shouldn't it be changed on the primary also?
