Thread: Getting errors from hard drive!

  1. #1

    Default Getting errors from hard drive!

    In /var/log/messages, I've gotten the below errors that also coincide with delayed startup of the OS (it seems to freeze for a while after these errors):

    Code:
    linux kernel: [  447.000044] ata1.00: exception Emask 0x0 SAct 0x0 SErr 0x0 action 0x6 frozen
    linux kernel: [  447.000050] ata1.00: failed command: WRITE DMA EXT
    linux kernel: [  570.000117]          res 40/00:00:00:00:00/00:00:00:00:00/00 Emask 0x4 (timeout)
    What's causing this? How do I fix it?

    Those exact errors are what I see when I "Esc" on boot and it's hanging. (And they're in the exact order I printed them in)

    OK, I rebooted again and noticed some more stuff:

    1. It first hangs after this message:
    [CODE]/dev/sda2: clean, 157855/1313280 Files, xxxx/xxxx Blocks (I didn't catch the number of blocks quickly enough, but it had actual numbers)

    2. It actually prints FOUR messages:
    Code:
    linux kernel: [  447.000044] ata1.00: exception Emask 0x0 SAct 0x0 SErr 0x0 action 0x6 frozen
    linux kernel: [  447.000050] ata1.00: failed command: WRITE DMA EXT
    linux kernel: [  570.000117]          res 40/00:00:00:00:00/00:00:00:00:00/00 Emask 0x4 (timeout)
                                         ata1.00: status: { DRDY}
    2. Those four messages appear FOUR times, with a long delay in between each time

    3. Then it prints: "fsck succeeded, mounting root device, read-write"

    Enjoy! You like black or green teas?

    OK, so after booting into "Fail Safe" mode, here's what I got:

    1. The same four errors, BUT this time they were accompanied by some new lines:

    Code:
    link is slow to respond
    device not ready (err no=-16), forcing hard reset
    soft resetting link
    configured for UDMA/133
    configured for UDMA/100
    device reported invalid CHS Sector 0
    And then it repeated those combined 10 lines a few times before finally moving on

    Also, how do I turn of AHCI in BIOS? Is it "SATA Adapter Enabled/Disabled"? Or "Plug & Play OS YES/NO"?

    None of those.
    All BIOS is different and you might not even have the option.

    Remind we what we were on yesterday ?
    Was it your partitions I reorganized ?

    It was mounting of a drive for all users (it was only readable by root), but this issue I'm 90% sure was occurring before that.

    You could do with someone more knowledgeable than me on this.

    I wouldn't like to 'Jeff' it totally for you. ;-)
