I have a Compaq EVO D310 it has recently been displaying a message on boot up saying;
Your hard disk drive is detecting an imminent failure.....etc etc.....Attribute Failed: # 05
Ok no problem I thought I will replace the disk with a brand new disk and hey presto...however I get the same message with a brand new disk also. In all I have tried 4 different disks all of different size and manufacturer all with the same message.
I have tried resetting the BIOS. Using a different IDE controller. Using a new IDE cable.
Any ideas what else I can try?
BTW one of the disks that I tested it with I am now using as an external drive with no problems.
