Hi all. I use that HDD Health thing. Its telling me
" UltraDMA CRC Error Count attribute is very low! Check the IDE cable, PCI frequency and system drivers."

Is it serious or do I need to do anything? If so what?

Thanks.

I use a similar drive health program and sometimes it comes up with alerts but the next time I use the PC the alert goes away.
The only time to worry is if you get the same alerts EVERY time and also if they are T.E.C (Threshold Exceeded Condition) warnings as this COULD mean that your hard drive is nearing the end of it's life.
