This is the error that I found in my event log last week. It appeared in the log when the PC was idle. The PC is running fine, and had I not looked in the log, I wouldn't have found this. I did a Scandisk (8kbs bad sector) on my 80Gig drive and I Degragged. I do have a year left on my extended warranty, but it's bugging me that the hard drive is humming along just fine. Does anyone know how reliable these warnings are? I backed up but this is not a good time for me to be replacing my hard drive. Any suggestions/experience with this error?

Download a disk check utility from the hard drive manufactures webpage.

If you not sure who manufactured the disk; Western Digital, Maxtor, have free disk check utilities that will work on all hard drive makes.

Thanks, Eyman, for your response. I went through Dell's tech support. The tech had me run a diagnostic test similar to chkdsk. He insisted on the "quick" test, which ran twice with flying colors. When he hung up, assuring me all was well, I I ran the "extended" test and it found a bad sector and warned there was a disk problem. I'm under warranty (extended, thank God) so Dell will have to come here and replace the drive.

Thanks again.
