    * If you have not shutdown the system properly last time Then this error comes mostly.

    * One solution could be Restart the PC and see if error is fixed.
    * If Error still comes You have to Reinstall the Operating System

    WHY THIS ERROR? ----2
    * This error also comes when location of computer is changed. It causes the lose connection of Sata or IDE wire connected to Hard Disk

    * Open the System Case OR cpu case and fix the proper wiring of Hard Disk and its Done

    Dear friend,

    First make sure that the hard disk is attached properly to your system. You can check this by going into BIOS of your system. It is also displayed in post BIOS message appeared on the very start-up of the system. If the hard disk is not still working then you can check the hard disk with another PC whether it is working or not. If not, you should replace it. You can also use live operating system such as Hiren's boot CD for hard disk diagnostic purpose.
    If the disk is working properly, then there its a problem with Windows XP. You can repair it with a system rescue disk or you should install and new fresh copy of Windows XP.
