Question about Dell Inspiron 3800 Celeron 500MHZ Processor (CPU) - 569KW
About once a week,the W2000 boot process stops and message appears:"W2000 could not start because of disk hardware configuration problem. Disk I/O error 00008001". I turn the computer off, then on again, and it starts normally (so far). Some day, it may decide not to. I cleaned the contacts at the rear of the HDD, but this did not seem to make any difference.
I would be inclined to think this was the beginnings of a hard drive failure. Typically these failures are due to mechanical wear on the disks where data is physically recorded. You can continue to use it, however, be aware that when it finally does fail you will likely corrupt some if not all data stored on the drive. At your first opportunity you should back up all data, pictures music, Internet favorites to CD or USB drive. You should also ensure you have your restore CDs for your operating system and any other programs you?ve since installed as well.
