ata2: command 0xca timeout


Ok, I have a amd x2 with asus a8v motherboard. I recently installed a new Western Digital Caviar SE16 sata drive. (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...2E16822144701).

I then installed fedora 64 and fedora 32 with a shared home partition. However my system locks up completly unusable (Magic Sysrq wont even work). And will display these errors when. I ctrl alt F1 :
ata2: command 0xca timeout, stat 0x50 host_stat 0x4
ata2: status=0x50 { DriveReady SeekComplete }

It happens at least so far after: I stopped working, and come back 30 min plus later.
Then I try to do something,(click on menu)
then it locks up and but the mouse still moves.
(Sometimes I ctrl at F1 to get those error messages.)
Then the mouse dies
And forced to do a hard reboot

Today I left the system on for about 7 hours, and came back and, the screensaver exits, click on the fedora menu. Then it locks up as usual.
looking in the log ( the complete attached). I find this

Viewing the log it appears that the ata2 ocurred (or were logged 4 hours before I came and restarted the computer. Nevertheless, the same lockup procedure happened.

Here is the log: (http://www.linuxforums.org/forum/att...t?d=1158019461)
