Howdy kuzzz.

Did you get that error this one time only, or has it repeated?

I'd suggest just keep using it, and we can chat if it happens again.

Memory corruption caused by a disk controller error.

I would test the memory, download a copy of Memtest86 and burn the ISO to a CD using Iso Recorder or another ISO burning program. Boot from the CD, and leave it running for at least 5 or 6 passes.

Just remember, any time Memtest reports errors, it can be either bad RAM or a bad motherboard slot. Test the sticks individually, and if you find a good one, test it in all slots.

And go to the mfrs site download the diax tester and run it.
