hda: max request size: 512KiB


I have a question. I sometimes get this error message with my machine.
hda: max request size: 512KiB
hda: lost interrupt
then, the pc blocks. Could someone tell me how to reduce the 512KiB, or this number is making lost I dont know what, in order to have linux working. I installed the debian stable, but it is not so much for the moment. I hope It will work out.Thank you.

this should work:
save this script:
this fixes 512MB errors and 512KiB errors as well
open up a root terminal and run the script
it worked for me!
