I am not sure if I can rule out any of them. My HDD is a 40GB SeagateHow serious is a "lost interrupt" error? Should I enforce the warrantyIt depends - a lot of things can cause this:
on my HDD?
1) A flaky IDE connector/cable, especially of the 80-core ATA66/100/133
2) An overheating HDD. Check if your HDD is an IBM Deskstar aka 'DeathStar',
which had a high failure rate from a variety of design defects.
3) An overheating CPU/motherboard. Check the capacitors on any motherboard
more recent than the year 2000.
4) Bad RAM.
5) A failing SMPS.
