Windows detected a hard disk problem
I just installed Vista Business SP1 on an HP dx5150 that has two Samsung 1Tb
Sata drives in a RAID-1 using the builtin Sata RAID controller. I get
periodic messages saying "Windows detected a hard disk problem", and the
system event log has warning events: "The driver has detected that device
\Device\Harddisk0\DR0 has predicted that it will fail. Immediately back up
your data and replace your hard disk drive. A failure may be imminent."

As the machine was just installed I had no data to preserve, so I downloaded
the Samsung Estools ISO image, made a CD, booted from it, and ran a full
test on both disks without any problems being detected.

So it seems that the warning being generated spurious, and due to a driver
and/or software error rather than an actual problem with either of the
disks.
