Errors on D:/ drive

Specs: XP Home, 1/1

3 weeks ago I had to clean install without data loss windows xp, this kept all my programs intact. I can’t remember if I installed the drivers for my ATA 100 Controller card. Several time when I start up my pc it take 4 minutes to get to desktop. I’ve looked into the computer management event viewer and these are the errors:

1)
An error was detected on device \Device\Harddisk1\D during a paging operation.

2)
The driver has detected that device \Device\Scsi\ultra1 has old or out-of-date firmware. Reduced performance may result.

Apparently my driver for my ATA 100 Controller card is missing. If this is so, why does it only affect my D:/ drive? I have my c:/ and d:/ on the same physical drive hooked into the ATA 100 Controller card.

I have run chkdsk d: /r. There are no apparent drive errors. I also reformatted the d:/ drive. I still get the two errors as stated above.

If I do need to reinstall the ATA Controller Card Drivers found in my PCI slot that this hard drive plugs into, how do I do this?

I do have the drivers on floppy disk, but the only time I’ve installed them before is when installing windows where I have to press F6 for additional drivers.

Any help is much appreciated. Thank you.

If you have a driver problem, it should be listed in device manager. Right click my computer, select properties, hardware tab, device manager. Look for the red and yellow warning markers.

More likely, you second hard drive has problems.

There are no red or yellow warning markers. The hard drive is western digital 250 gig and is 1.5 yrs old. This drive is the C:/ and D:/ drive. Only the D:/ partition has shown the above errors.
1)
An error was detected on device \Device\Harddisk1\D during a paging operation.

2)
The driver has detected that device \Device\Scsi\ultra1 has old or out-of-date firmware. Reduced performance may result.

If it was the drive going bad, why wouldn't both partitions be showing errors?

Hi,

Not obvious why you get a msg about D and not C.

But regardless, you need to install the drivers.

In device mgr, go to the drive's driver tab.

If at first you don't succeed, you're about average.
