I get this message.

Windows - Delayed Write Failed

I typed that into google and found a program that is suppose to fix this issues.

It's at this link:

The last step says:

Set the maximum working cache to either 64 MB or 128 MB

I keep getting this message:

"New settings were out of valid ranges"

What values did you type? Did you read the whole thread? Are you sure that your hardware is fine (no overheating and no cheap I/O cables)?

I tried both(64, 128) and the message appears.

In the steps it says MB and in the program it says KB.

Read what thread?

How can I determine if there is overheating or cheap I/O cables?

It doesn't matter if it says MB or KB; IT people know the difference. As seen from the picture, you need to key the values in KB, e.g., 64 MB is 65536 KB (64 x 1024 = 65536).

According to a few posts at the link that you provided, disk temperatures and cheap cables can also be the cause of that issue with internal or external disks.
