problems with DMA - BAD EIP Value

BAD EIP Value on Shutdown - happened after NorthEast Blackout.

- I have Redhat 9 installed and running just fine. My PC performed an unusual shutdown during the Blackout, i was unable to shutdown correctly.
- Now, the system boots fine. However when I ask it to shut down, I get the following Code: Bad EIP Value. This massage appears after it kills several procceses, after unmounting file system, after Halting System. THe systme hangs and I just shut it down or reboot.

I checked the log files for Boot and everything logs as successful

Under system log I get these unusual logs:
Aug 16 15:02:35 localhost gconfd (root-3809): Resolved address "xml:readonly:/etc/gconf/gconf.xml.defaults" to a read-only config source at position 2
Aug 16 15:07:31 localhost kernel: hdb: dma_intr: status=0x51 { DriveReady SeekComplete Error }
Aug 16 15:07:31 localhost kernel: hdb: dma_intr: error=0x84 { DriveStatusError BadCRC }
Aug 16 15:13:16 localhost kernel: hdb: dma_intr: status=0x51 { DriveReady SeekComplete Error }
Aug 16 15:13:16 localhost kernel: hdb: dma_intr: error=0x84 { DriveStatusError BadCRC }

hdb is my slave drive on the first ide channel...this is where I have my linux partitions.

I am unsure how to use badblocks but I did try fsck. I ran it in single user mode, unmounted hdb and then I did fsck /dev/hdb and it told me that the superblock did not recognize a valid ext2 partition or drive.

I also tried setting my bios to pio instead of dma.

I also tried switching cables and nothing has worked.

hopefully I can figure out how to use the badblocks command.

Please help.
