System Freeze

Ok, so heres whats up. I just finished building my system. I get freezes where windows xp sp2 locks up, but i am still able to move mouse, alt-tab. etc. ctrl alt del doesnt work though. I end up having to restart the machine with power button. Heres the error im getting in the system log:

An error was detected on device \Device\Harddisk0\D during a paging operation. (error ID 51)

I look around on yahoo, but couldnt find much help. From what ive found, others experiencing the same problem have a nForce mobo, not nessessarily the same as mine tho. Im running an nForce 780i.

nForce + core2(duo/quad) + sata hdd = freeze

Any ideas on how to fix this or whats happening?

More about system freeze
  1. are you using MSwindows drivers for hdd controller or nvidia? Is it IDE drive or SATA?
  2. nvidia drivers i believe (not sure). And SATA
  3. Well, I rolled back the Nvidia drivers for the SATA controller to the mircorosft drivers and disabled write caching on the hdd itself and the error hasnt appeard yet! (fingers crossed!) I have gotten one hdd bad block error when trying to install adobe cs3, but it didnt freeze the system up.
