This is a Windows 2000 Executive STATUS error message. Choose one of the options from the message box. Run the Chkdsk utility, with the /r option, on the hard disk. After that, if this message reappears, run hardware diagnostics on the disk drive and its controller. If the diagnostics do not detect a problem, contact the hardware and/or driver software suppliers. Before you contact the suppliers, note the information about the event that is in the Event Log.
