    Lately, my Vista 32 installation has shown a BSOD and after that there is
    all sorts of problems arising.
    1. System has an obvious problem with disk configuration - in safe mode it
    hangs on CRCDISK driver for about 10-15 minutes before going any further. In
    Normal mode booting takes awfully long time - over 5 minutes, and overal
    disk performance is horrible after that Althought procesor use is no more
    than 2% and memory is i no excess either 35% system is very slow in
    rtesponse, many times hanging for a minute before completing simple
    operations like opening a folder.
    2. There is about 1000 errors (literaly 1000) per day relating to Search
    service failing to create new catalog, and failing to start.
    3. The system complains also about "IRQARB: ACPI BIOS does not contain an
    IRQ for the device in PCI slot 14, function 0." This goes for devices for a
    slots 11-16, in a row.
    While researching on the web people claiming all sorts of resolutions to
    that problem, ranging from diskonnecting the display for the time when
    windows boot, to resetting the Power settings. But I dont think this does
    apply for me.

    I use Opteron 165 Dual Core on MSI K8N Nvidia NForce4, two SATA Drives in
    RAID 0 (on Nvidia RAID) and ATI X1600Pro on PCI. Nothing special - system is
    not overclocked so there is no issue with overheating or something like

    Any suggestions?
