Every now and then my Ubuntu freezes and then gives me a black screen with the following message:


/dev/sda1:
Setting Advanced Power Management level disabled
HDIO_Drive_CMD failed: input/output error
I looked around the forum a bit and some suggest
hdparm -b 255 but that just gives me the same message as when the desktop crashes:


/dev/sda1:
Setting Advanced Power Management level disabled
HDIO_Drive_CMD failed: input/output errorSuggestions?

It turns out that my problem was due to a faulty ram.
I pulled out the bad memory and my problems are gone.

Run memtest that comes with the Live CD and check yours.

you can set
hdparm -B 255 /dev/sda1
to turn off the advanced power management.
