A hard disk error perhaps?

Specs: Windows 7/XP Dual, ?/3gig
I was checking through System Errors in a programme (Win Audit) which gives a detailed System Audit recently and I came across this line which appears several times in succession and I wondered whether it was an indication that the drive was failing.

Not usually a sign of a failing drive unless you get a bunch of them. The message could be referring to the same block. Suggest you run chkdsk /r on the drive in question.

Answers are only as good as the information you provide.

Thank you Wanderer, the message refers to the same block in all of them. I'll follow up on your advice and comeback later with the results.
