Unhappy CRC error --System Halted occurs occasionally


About one out of every four times I boot Linux (after selecting Linux in LILO) I get an error that reads: "CRC Error --System Halted". The other 75% of the time it works fine. I am using Mandrake 9.1, dual-booting with Windows XP Home, both of which are on separate hard drives. I am aware that the CRC error is usually a disk error, but it is puzzling why the error only occurs 20-25% of the time. Any help would be appreciated.

It happened to me once while booting the kernel. I found the problem... a faulty cooler (it had stopped working!)

Check your cooler... Maybe it doesn't start every time!

If the cooler was the problem, why would Windows boot normally 100% of the time, but Linux only 75-80% of the time?

You have a point... My windows crashed every time!

Must be something else, then...
