Hi,

Windows XP, Athlon 3.7 1GB ram 2 x SATA drive c = 80gb d = 160 gb

When I start machine it does a chkdsk on the d drive each time - finds no errors and machine boots & runs ok.

Tried to do a defrag on D and it saysir is unable to run as chkdsk is scheduled. and to run chkdsk /f ( the /f - run chkdsk on drive f which is a dvd drive - odd) tried to run chkdsk f but doesn't run - neither does chkdsk f

Looked in sheduled tasks and not in there

It just adds x seconds to the boot up process - any idea's anyone - is windows confused or id my HDD failing - brand new machine 2 months old

Thanks

I have follwed advice on Microsoft page & checked msconfig but that has not fixed. Have contacted Carrera who supplied the machine and they are already advising me to back up data ....

Looks like might be a reformat unless someone can save the day !!

Thanks to all

Thanks to all as before but the solution was simple and thanks to the tech support at Carrera who advised the following

run chkdsk D: /f from the command ( dos prompt ) this broke the loop and windows now boots up fine.

Terrific support from Carrera
