View Full Version : [Problem]"Delayed write failed"

09-27-2007, 12:07 AM
A while ago i bought a Asus M2N-E M/B.......

When i first bought this M/B it was for a new build, everything was going ok until i started coping my old data over and i got a pop-up baloon saying "Delayed write failed" and the system would then be unusable unless i restart it. i dug around and found a driver update. after installing that it was fine.

However recently i have re-installed my pc and have the same error, re-installed the driver update....didn't fix it :( its only when i copy large files or alot of data at once.

Also it's only when writing data. i can run Virus scans on the HDD all day and its fine.

Oh and the only drive that this occours on is a RAID 0 Stripe two identical 250Gb Western Digtal Drives.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, Thanks.

Did you update the HDD drivers or the RAID adapter drivers or both?

the .inf file is labeled nvraid, and as far as i know thats the only updated driver for sata/raid on asus's website...

Looking at microsofts knowledge base, they say to set the cache control to 0 via the registry.

Haven't had any errors so far, however haven't had time to properly test it.
