computer prob


Recommended Posts

If you go into command prompt, and type in "chkdsk /f /r" (without quotes), it should ask you if you want to run on restart. Press Y, then restart your computer.


The scan should then run.

ok, scan runs on boot up, but it says ntfs something or other, then says...cannot open volume for direct access. help anyone!


This is caused by either anti virus or s.m.a.r.t configuration on your motherboard. Basically you're trying to scan your drive when it's using a running process. You'll have to go into your bios and have a look at your settings.


Updating to xp sp2 can help
