Default winxp restart

My computer boots and loads the Window XP without problem. But just
after that or sometimes a while later, it hangs. I have checked the
event viewer and have found the following message: "Error. Disk Event
ID 11 and atapi ID5.

Before you replace it make sure that both ends are plugged firmly into the drive and motherboard. SATA cables are nice, but they tend to be looser and easier to remove than the old IDE cables.
