Event ID 51 Error

by pcwiz100 - 7/18/07 11:46 AM

Hi,

I am running Windows XP Pro SP2. I realize that everytime I start my computer, many Event 51 errors come up within a time frame of 3 seconds in the System log in the Event Viewer. However, the errors only come up in the log when Windows starts up. After that they don't come up. here is the log for the error:
Event Type: WarningEvent Source: Disk
Event Category: None
Event ID: 51
Date: 7/18/2007
Time: 11:31:54 AM
User: N/A
Computer: PC
Description:
An error was detected on device \Device\Harddisk0\D during a paging operation.

My hard drive is a Samsung SP2504C and it is about 1.5 years old. I ran a S.M.A.R.T check and it said my hard drive operation was perfectly normal. I tried setting the pagefile to clear on shutdown, but the error came back up again once I switched it back to not clearing on shutdown.

I recently found a forum post regarding the problem:

"Go to Device Manger, then to the hard drive controller and uncheck the
command queuing for you hard drive. This will stop the event ID error 51.
That is how I fixed this problem for myself. Good luck"

Here is the link to the full thread: http://hardware.mcse.ms/message275296.html

I found the option to disable command queuing on my HD, but is this method safe to use?

Any help is appreciated
Thanks
