ATA controller ATA device Read/write cache not enabled

Warning W3102 - Read Cache (look-ahead buffer) or Write Cache (write-back) are disabled. For performance both should be enabled. The look-ahead buffer should only be disabled in specialised applications where the majority of I/O is random and look ahead would not be beneficial. The write-back cache should only be disabled if data is paramount or the system is prone to power loss that would prevent the cache to flush.
Fix: You may need to use a specific utility for the drive downloadable from the manufacturer’s website to enable or disable these settings. Some advanced controllers allow you to set such settings also.

Error E300: Failed to initialise OpenGL.
Fix: Check that the OpenGL drivers are correctly installed. It is possible the OpenGL driver does not support the current video mode, you may need to reduce resolution, colour depth or refresh rate. Try the OpenGL screen-savers to see if they work correctlty
