"Windows - Delayed Write Failed"

  loudman 19:33 12 Dec 2007

I am getting this message constantly for the past week or so. I am running WIN XP Pro, SP2, 1GB RAM, Seagate 2X250GB HDs in RAID0 stripe, ATi Radion XT800 graphics card 256MB RAM.

I have not recently installed new hardware or software. I have followed the advise on the MS Support page as stated here (click here) but with no luck, the error message still keeps popping up.

Any of you savvy guys and gals any ideas how I might resolve this problem???. Otherwise its a reformat and full reinstall for my next weekend as this popup is doing my head and eyes in.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Repair XP by replacing corrupt files

sfc /scannow

in the run box, press enter and let system file checker find and replace missing / corrupt file in windows and explorer.This will take awhile to complete and you may be asked for the CD to be in the drive if windows is not preinstalled on the hard drive.
