Delayed write failed Failed to save all components for the file \\system32\\00007e87


HI...............

This error typically occurs when the "Enable write caching on the disk" feature for your hard disk is turned on.

However, if the "Enable write caching on the disk" feature is turned off, this error can occur because the Ultra Direct Memory Access (UDMA) hard disk controller may be configured in either of the following ways:
  • You are using a 40-wire connector cable to connect the UDMA drive to the controller instead of the required 80-wire, 40-pin cable.
  • The BIOS settings are configured to force faster UDMA modes.
For more information about the delayed write failure, go to the "Delayed Write Failure information" section.

To resolve this issue, first check whether the "Enable write caching on the disk" feature is turned on. If it is turned on, turn it off. To do this, follow these steps.

Note If you turn off the "Enable write caching on the disk" feature, your hard disk may perform more slowly and may affect the overall system performance of your computer. Because of this, you may want to monitor system performance after you follow the steps in this section.

To turn off Enable write caching on the disk, follow these steps:
  1. Click Start, and then click My Computer.
  2. Right-click the hard disk, and then click Properties.
  3. Click the Hardware tab.
  4. Click to select the hard disk, and then click Properties.
  5. Click the Policies tab.
  6. Click to clear the Enable write caching on the disk check box, and then click OK.
  7. Click OK to close the Local Disk (C:) Properties dialog box.
  8. Repeat steps 3 through 5 for each hard disk that is installed in your computer.
If these steps resolve the error message, you are finished.

If these steps do not resolve the error message, or if the feature is already turned off, go to the "Advanced Troubleshooting" section. This section is intended for advanced computer users. If you are not comfortable with advanced troubleshooting, contact Support. For information about how to do this, visit the following Microsoft Web site: http://support.microsoft.com/contactus/

Make sure that the hard disk controller is configured correctlyTo make sure that the hard disk controller is configured correctly, check the cable connection and the BIOS settings. First, try method 1.Method 1: Check that you are using an 80-wire, 40-pin cableMake sure that your UDMA hard disk controller is using an 80-wire, 40-pin cable. For information about how to do this, see the documentation that is included with your computer, or contact your UDMA hard disk controller manufacturer.

If you are using an 80-wire, 40-pin cable, go to method 2.
If you are not using this cable, obtain and use an 80-wire, 40-pin cable, and then test to determine whether this resolves the error message.

If this resolves the error message, you are finished.

GOOD LUCK................

Boot disk failure no hard disk found


The error means that your system is not able to detect the hard drive on the system, check if the hard drive wire connections are tight and not loose and then try rebooting the system.

Look for hard drive stats on POST whether it succeeds or fails. This is how you can do that.
When system boots up, press the PAUSE?BREAK on the black screen and see whats system comment for your hard drive power test. If it succeeds and your hard drive's connections are also tight then possibly your hard drive might have crashed ( which means there are bad sectors on the hard disk).

Try performing disk checking on the hard drive to see if there are any bad sectors on the hard disk, the disk check will automatically fix the soft errors but if the errors and hard errors in that case the disk checking utility will not automatically fix the errors and you will need to get a new hard drive.

Thanks !!!

Hi i m hems i m upgrading hard disk on my ( acer aspire 1641nwlmi ) laptop hard disk is 160 gb but it's not detecting my new hard disk , my new hard is ok but i have quistion 160 gb is supporting my laptop...


The Aspire 1641 is supplied with a 80Gb hard drive. If the new 160Gb hard drive is not detected in the BIOS then the BIOS cannot support this size hard drive.
Check your manual/specification to see the maximum size hard drive it can support.
You can install the 160Gb hard drive in an USB hard drive adapter case and use it as an external USB hard drive.

When I start it it says operating system not found, and stops loading!


When you start it up press f2 to enter bios. Go into boot configuration. Make sure the boot order is:
1. A:/ (floppy)
2. D:/ (cd drive)
3. C:/ (hard drive)

If the boot order is correct make sure your bios are registering your hard drive. If it's not then replace the hard drive. If it is then reformat and re-install the operating system.
