I have a 1tb sata Hard drive, which is a replacement from the 500gb IDE Western digital I had previous, yet the same same problem occurs. Windows pops up the Delayed Write Failed message, and then no longer displays the secondary hdd (1tb drive) in My computer.

Any ideas on how to rectify the problem. I'm running XPSP3 OS

- Have you got the newest drivers for motherboard (if needed)?
- Are BIOS' settings set to 'default '?
- Have you tested memory with e.g. memtest ?

my motherboard is a V8N-VN which drivers would i need to rectify this.
I haven't changed any bios settings, other than when i need to boot from usb, but i switch them straight back when i don't boot from usb.
memory hasn't been tested, what am i testing it for?

thanks for your reply

why ? memory can be to blame for the problem


http://www.memtest86.com/download.html

1.burn CD from image
2.set dvd as 1st device to boot, the program will start automatically,
3.do the full check - approx.1hour
4.You mustn't get any errors


Is the mobo made by Asus? I cannot find the model.


The mobo is probably with nVidia chipset :
go http://www.nvidia.co.uk/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-uk and choose OPTION 2 - motherboard drivers, scan it, download it and install it :)

I was getting this on my desktop computer a few weeks ago (it has 2 internal hard drives).

I removed the PC cover and checked all the connections to the hard drives (power and IDE cables at both ends).

I made sure they were all reseated and put the cover back on.

Problem has not happened since.

So I would suspect a slighlty loose connection to your hard drive.

thanks 7777777 for the link to the mobo driver, seems to be doing the trick for now, guess i bought a WD 1TB HDD for nothing realling if this was my only problem, oh well used 500gb of it so far

will leave rep

:thumbsup: cheers

Another problem: When i restart my pc, the pc hangs at the motherboard ASUS screen, so I have to manually turn the pc off and back on again... How do I fix this?
#13
again,not only one solution.

1. Any signal from system speaker?Is the speaker connected?
2.Did you change anything in BIOS?Have you added any hardware?Did you overclock anything?
3.How many hdds?1 or 2 ? What type?Sata + ata?
4.What PSU have you got? Can you check your PSU with multimeter - use empty power connector : black = ground, yellow = 12V, red = 5V (black + yellow and black + red ,sorry the infor is not essential :) )

1. system speaker ? :?
2. new hdd added recently but don't know when the error started, don't usually restart pc or shut it down often.
3. 1 ide is that ata and 1 sata
4. I don't know what make my psu is, nor do i have a multimeter but i can acquire one
#15
Yes, system speaker is onboard or is connected to a small speaker inside the case e.g beeps when memory is checked (help to indicate specific problems with system)

At this stage I would suggest PSU is the most likely to cause problems - you have added extra disk to supply in power and it would start to struggle with system.Can you open the case and read the label of the PSU?Manufacturer, model, total power and number of 'A' under 12V and 5V. How old is the PSU ?
#16
this is the one i have i think clicky Antec TP3-550

I would be wrong then, this is very good PSU and should not cause any troubles with almost any config + 1 any single graphic card unless broken.Check this with multimeter anyway...just in case, as a lot of mistery troubles have been caused by PSU..

Can you make sure that all bios settings are set to 'default'?Ideally, use the 'clear cmos'jumper or remove battery from motherboard for half an hour.
