In the bios, disable the "external Cache". This is the mainboard's memory. Not the chip's onboard memory.
Sometimes, the cache on the board will go south and throw all sorts of errors.
Just disable it and reboot. Use the machine as always and look for more errors.
If you get them same as now,enable the cache and pull the memory, (RAM), a stick at a time. Run it as above. If you continue to get errors, call WD and tell them that YOU diagnosed a harddrive failure and you want the disk replaced.
Good Luck!
