Windows Delayed Write Failed

  Ian-195322 21:03 25 Jul 2004

I constantly get an error message pop up which reads as follows...Windows delayed write failed

Windows was unable to save all the data for the file C:/$Mft. The data has been lost. This error may be caused by a failure of your computer hardware or network connection. Please try to save this file elsewhere.

OS is Windows XP pro, there is a network card although it is currently not connected. On restart after several of these pop ups have appeared Windows runs Check disk, I have run full virus scans and pest patrol, system appears clean. Any ideas out there?

Could be the HDD failing - this is the message I got before an IBM packed in.
