Intermittently I receive a "post startup error" with a code 1708 when I boot my Panasonic CF-45 laptop. Normally, CTRL-ALT-DEL works. Now I've started receiving hard disk write errors as I'm working in applications, and the machine keeps wanting to perform Scandisk with surface analysis.
Is my drive on its last legs? Or are their fixes I can use to keep the machine running (needs to last until Christmas)
