Random Freezes with Nvidia Chipset

Something to look into if you were one of the early adopters of the Nvidia chipset back in 2007-ish and now notice it starting to pause or freeze your computer every so often, especially during high I/O.

I noticed on my end that I tend to get a spam of the following warning in my event viewer during these times:
Warning: nvstor64 “Reset to device, DeviceRaidPort1, was issued.”
Warning: nvstor64 “A request to this device has been cancelled. Device: DeviceRaidPort1″

As usual it's a software/driver issue.

See one way to go about resetting the chipset drivers here:

For me, it worked to just go to Device Manager > IDE > Nvidia nForce Serial ATA Controller > Properties and disable Command Queuing on the drives being problematic.
