I have this problem in my PC. It shows this error message in a blue screen from time to time.
"Disk Write Error
Unable to write to disk in drive C:
Data or files may be lost"
Can anyone tell me what might be wrong? I think I know the problem but want to know more about it and what might be the solution.
Thanks in advance.
