    Write Error!

    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.
    With great power comes great responsibility.

    Well in my case on both computers i worked on (which showed a similar problem), that made the trick; and as said above; disable any option of power saving in the bios realted to ypur hard-disks...
