Event ID - 51 - An error was detected on device \Device\Harddisk0\D during a paging operation

Event ID - 5 - A parity error was detected on \Device\Ide\IdePort3.

I got so frustrated by tese that I bought a new DELL. Most of d f**kin a***holes of Computer Service centres in India no nothing else than a mere backup n format !

SYMPTOMS:

1. System Hangs on COLD START
2. Large chain of same error during HEAVY DATA TRANSFER
3. May occasionally reboot

DISTRACTIONS:

This f**kin "\Device\Harddisk0\D" will make U feel the culprit is Hard Disk

:-) Many argue that "Harddisk0" refers to Ur primary partitions

Whenever its a controller error,

1. Formatting Hard Disk
2. Reframing Partition Table
3. Replacing SATA/ATA or Power cable
4. Updating drivers
5. Flashing BIOS
6. Loading factory settings
7. Replacing Hard Disk
8. Setting MASTER or SLAVE jumpers
9. Fan Cooling and Temperature changes
10.NVidia Drivers n all oder rubbish

I TRIED ALL THESE BUT DID NOT WORK

CHANGE THE ON-BOARD CONTROLLER ! No other go...

This error and all those f**kin errors in log along these drvied me crazy n mad....

My Board was Intel D915GLVG

There is NO SOLUTION. For now. ;) And maybe never will. But theres is ONE thing, you can do with Hiren's BootCD after you get that stupid error. Just read my two previous messages. :)

I am getting this error when:

1.) Downloading huge data on high speeds (for example movies at 2 - 5 MB/s)
2.) When extracting huge data. (for example few *rar files of 1.37 GB)

So. :bored:

Hi everyone. I had the same problem on my system:

OS Name: Microsoft Windows XP Professional
OS Version: 5.1.2600 Service Pack 2 Build 2600
System Manufacturer: ASUSTeK Computer INC.
System Model: P5LD2-V
Processor: Intel(R) Pentium(R) D CPU 3.00GHz
BIOS Version/Date: American Megatrends Inc. 0603 , 05/09/2006
1 GB RAM

Size: 465.7 GB
Number of Hard Drives: 2
Hard Drive Member 1: ST3250624NS
Hard Drive Member 2: ST3250624NS
Number of Volumes: 1

and I found solution for my system. Probably it will help other users. I noticed when I switching memory usage from "System cache" to "Programs" the problem disappeared. I started digging these symptoms and I found interesting articles:

http://www.microsoft.com/technet/prodtechnol/windows2000serv/r...29939.mspx

I think this can explain why this error can cause EVENT ID -51 on many different systems.
WORKAROUND:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management\SystemPages setting value: 0xFFFFFFFF works fine.

I wonder if this solution help You.

Apparently, worked for me ... but I wouldn't count on that in the long time ^^.

I just started having this problem today, after owning my laptop for 2 years. My windows xp pro sp3 is slow and freezes on normal boot. It will bot in safe mode to show a event viewer full of id 51 errors. The odd thing is my linux boots and runs fine. A low low scan of the ntfs partition shows no errors.

well, I suggest you to defragment you HDD. It worked for me (not long, but...)
Use Auslogics Disk Defrag or similar FREE software :) Maybe it will help for a while.

To really understand this problem, you have to go back and read this entire thread starting with page 1. Then and only then can you truly achieve what the ancient philosophers spoke of as "understanding" ... ;)

As I have previously mentioned, changing your onboard ATA/SATA controller is d one n only way to overcome dis !

If all dose havin dis problem post deir MotherBoard specifications, U can C a lot of similarities !

Change d controller n get rid of dis problem ! it aint gonna cost U much !

If only it were just that simple ... but it isn't. Now all I had to do was unplug my USB printer.

Try replacing the s/ata controler on a laptop.

I wouldn't say that. There are too many possible causes of this event.
I agree with Julia - read the whole thread and start from the simpliest solution that worked for other people. If they don't work you might go for more costly ones as changing controllers, hdd or mobo.

In my case it was just a bad SATA cable.

Hello guys, really nice reading, I've spent the whole day today reading this thread. Couple of days ago, I bought new SATA2 hard drive Seagate 640GB (ST3640323AS) for mobo asrock k7s8xe+ with integrated SATA controller SIS 180, and guess what :) I started getting events 9 (The description for Event ID ( 9 ) in Source ( SiSRaid ) cannot be found) and 51 (An error was detected on device \Device\Harddisk1\D during a paging operation).
I had random system freezes (even a mouse was not moving), but after 15 seconds I was able to continue everytime, no bsod, no data corruption.
So far I tried:
-I disabled tagged queuing and synchronous transfer in scsi properties of the drive - no improvement
-updated last official bios 2.0 with sata rom 0.96a (from bios 1.91a which had sata rom 0.96a as well) - didn't help
-updated last modded bios 1.93L (from http://www.lejabeach.com/ASRock/html/K7S8XEP.htm) with sata rom updated to 1.06 - didn't help
-tested with winxp sp2 - the same error
-tested with SIS raid driver 1.05 and 1.09 - the same error

I plan to buy some super cool shielded SATA cable, and if this wouldn't help, I'll consider buying a new SATA2 PCI controller.

If you don't want to have such an issue with old SATA onboard controllers, go buy IDE disk and upgrade to sata with a new machine.

Julia,

Are u serious? I wouldn't be shocked if a USB printer could cause this error... I think a North wind could cause this @#%@Q!$~+@#!! bleeping event 51 error

Can you tell me what you did to arrive at your conclusion?

Thanks,

FYI people, this might be SATA related, but I've gotten the event 51 error on all 3 of my external drives, and only 1 is a SATA:

WD 2000JB 200GB USB (hi speed)
Seagate FreeAgent 320GB USB (hi speed)
Seagate FreeAgentPro 750GB eSATA2 (this also has a USB connection but I've rarely used it)

The majority of my errors (60% to 80%) have occurred on the Seagate USB 320GB, but I've had a few on the WD and the Seagate Pro.

I had the same errors on my previous PC - I had all the same external drives attached, and the same internal SATA drives. I was running WinXP SP1 with an Athlon 64 1.8Ghz CPU, with only 1GB RAM.

Now I'm running WinXP XP2 with an Intel Core2 Duo E8400 @ 3Ghz, with 2GB RAM and it's like nothing has changed. I hate Microsoft. >:o

I didn't spend a lot of time troubleshooting on my older PC cuz I thought it might just be my slow CPU and small amount of RAM causing the paging errors.

I almost cried when I saw the evt 51 errors popping up after I built my new machine.

Yes, the thing that did it was the Lexmark USB printer, which my Windows computers for some reason recognize as a removable disk.

How did I discover that? Sort of by the scientific method. After fussing and fuming for quite a long while, I decided to strip the computer down to total basics with no peripherals. No peripherals, I had no problem. I then started adding things back in very slowly, one at a time a day at a time, until I began to have problems.

Belief is USELESS. We need evidence. :bored: :D:D haha
ANYTHING can cause this error :bored: For me it is download speed/writing speed to the HDD.

Actually, if you do read the whole thread, there is clear evidence that it is not "anything" that causes the problem. It is, rather, evident that there are three or four things that are mentioned with great frequency, including USB, SATA, etc. Whether it is a voltage drop caused by one of these three or four things that results in the error, I do not know and cannot determine since I am not smart enough and also with a new printer, I no longer have the problem.

Just as an aside, for those thinking of reading the entire thread, here are the statistics:

Now, here's my thought: we're going at it unscientifically and perhaps even from the wrong direction. I don't have the technical knowledge to do this myself, but here is what I would do if I knew how.

I would treat the analysis as though I were determining the cause of a disease. In our case, we must first determine the disease for which the Event ID 51, paging problems, and perhaps other things are symptoms. It could, for example, be that the voltage drop mentioned above is the disease or it may be a symptom (does it occur in laptops with their built-in batteries?). And then, having separated symptoms from the disease itself, we can work on the cause or causes (runny noses are symptoms; common cold is the disease; treat the runny nose and you are not treating or curing the disease which is actually caused by a virus).

It is my belief that when you get things in their proper places, they make sense, the light bulb comes on, and we say, "THAT's it!" At the moment in this discussion, few things make a whole lot of sense, no light bulbs have come on, and at any given time at least 50% of the thread participants are saying, "No, that's NOT it!."

I wonder whether in the various things (USB, SATA, controller boards, etc.) that appear to be causally related to this problem, there is a common problem or effect that can be found in all of them that results in the voltage drop (or whatever the "disease" may be) and all those with all their different situations will finally be able to say, "THAT's it!"
