Alright dudes, here's a question that's a bit unusual. Last night I had some FTP transfers running onto my only SATA drive installed (drive G for reference), I set it to go overnight then went to bed, only to wake up to a box with this message:
Windows - Delayed Write Failed : Windows was unable to save all the data for the file G:$Mft. The data has been lost. This error may be caused by a failure of your computer hardware or network connection. Please try to save this file elsewhere.
Shit.! There were a couple similar boxes with filenames that were being written at the time, after checking the windows management system events tab, these errors had been occuring since maybe a half hour after I had gone to bed. Anyway, since the system had hung I figured it might be a general error as I'm running slightly overclocked (210x10 right now, no voltage bumps from stock), so I restarted it and it wouldn't boot into windows, the HDD access light was on, so I unplugged the SATA drive and it boots into windows no problem.
Plugged the drive back in, and on post the mobo won't go through the hard drive detection ., so I plugged the SATA drive into the speed unlocked ones (the bottom ports near the battery), and everything fires up and works just fine.
So my question is, did the NF3 SATA controller take a .? And if so, should I be worried about the rest of the chipset giving up the ghost? Has anyone else had issues like this?
Sorry for the long post, and thanks.
edit: basically I want to know which SATA controller took a dump, and if you think this will be a progressive problem that will **** up everything else (my files on my ide drives, etc)
