    Need your help again guys.
    An error message keeps popping up on my system.
    The error message reads * Attribute Ultra ATA CRC Error count changed from 189 to 191. Sometimes it reads 191 to 188. When I click ok it goes away and doesnt reappear.
    I am using windows XP Pro. This seems to happen when I am surfing the internet. I am using AOL 9.0 Optimized if that means anything.

    The motherboard is a Soyo P4x400 with an Intel Pentium 4 1.80 GHZ. The HDD is a new Maxtor 160GB. RAM is 512 MG. The video card is a Maxtor 550. I have a Pioneer DVD-RW DVR-104 and I am running Windows XP

    Thanks for your quick response.

    Try the diagnostic utilities http://www.maxtor.com/en/support/downloads/powermax.htm and see if that sheds some light on it. I dont know anything about that MB so I'm not sure if there is something on that end, maybe someone else can shed some light on this.

    first thing to do is get rid of aol entirely. if you are using broadband internet access, you can get to aol thru any browser with the aol bring yopur own isp program. next go to your mobo's site and download the latest 4in1 drivers and install them. ir sounds like it is a bios problem w/your mobo. you can also check the mobo site to see if they have a bios flash for that problem. if you do need to flash the bios, follow the directions TO THE LETTER or you will hose your mobo.

    Thanks guys but I think I found the problem.
    I downloaded a program a few weeks ago called HDD Health. It monitors the hard drivd and makes these notations. I disabled the program and the messages went away. I also downloaded Maxtor's Hard Drive Diagnostics as you people suggested and ran it. The drive is fine. Thanks again
