Windows 2000 multiple event ID 51: "An error was detected on device \Device\Harddisk0\DR0 during a paging operation." RRS feed

  • Question

  • Server: Windows Server 2000 SP 4 32-bit.  HP Intel server.  1GB RAM, 2 x 72 GB SATA disks in RAID 1 using the onboard SATA RAID controller.  One of the disks was replaced a before we knew about this issue.  The mirror is divided in 2 partitions:  system (C: 10 GB total, about 3 GB free) and data (D: 46 GB total, about 19 G free).  This is a member server of the domain.

    A few months ago we have been getting multiple occurrences of this warning in the system event log:

    Event Type: Warning
    Event Source: Disk
    Event Category: None

    It happens several times per second filling up the log and overwriting other events.

    Yesterday morning it crashed, leaving a dump file, which I analyzed and got this:

    HAL_MEMORY_ALLOCATION (ac)
    The HAL was unable to obtain memory for a system critical requirement.
    These allocations are made early in system initialization and such a
    failure is not expected.  It probably indicates some other critical error
    such as pool corruption or massive consumption.
    Arguments:
    Arg1: 00001000, Allocation size.
    Arg2: 00000006, 0
    Arg3: 8006ea32, Pointer to string containing file name.
    Arg4: 0000019d, (reserved)

    Windows explorer shows the correct info about the partitions, but Logical Disk Management doesn't show the drive letter of the data partition and says all of it as available though healthy.

    What could be the issue?  Any suggested troubleshooting step?

    Thanks a lot in advance.
