Ocassionally when I boot my XP Pro pc the pc goes into Check Disc first.
It always comes out OK and continues to boot.
But what is causing this to happen?
I've checked the disc and memory and found no problems. I've also checked the CPU and hard drive temps and there does not appear to be a problem.
Could there still be a problem with the memory or hard drive? Or could the motherboard be failing?
I need this to be stable.
There was an incident about a month ago where I had not properly pushed the power connector into the motherboard and the was a small flash and then the pc shut down.
However,this problem first reared it's ugly head prior to the power problem.
I run XP Pro SP3 fully patched.
I have an E8400 CPU, 4g's RAM,a 1Tb. WD Black hard drive and a Gigabyte motherboard with a Corsair HX620 power supply.
I could really use some help with this.
Thanks.

The only thing I can thin of is to go into run/msconfig and choose the option that lets you go through the boot up one step at a time. You could go to safe mode and restart the system and see if it does the same thing.

Hello jst42day.... Welcome to GeeksToGo, :) :) :)

I'm sorry to hear about your issue. We will try to help you resolve this as soon as possible.
Please understand we are all volunteers and we are not here all the time. Sometimes it may be a extended amount of time to get back to you. If it has been more then 3 days please shoot me a PM and I will try to get back to you quickly then.


NEW INSTRUCTIONS:

Run hard drive diagnostics: http://www.tacktech....ay.cfm?ttid=287
Make sure, you select tool, which is appropriate for the brand of your hard drive.
Depending on the program, it'll create bootable floppy, or bootable CD.
If downloaded file is of .iso type, use ImgBurn: http://www.imgburn.com/ to burn .iso file to a CD (select "Write image file to disc" option), and make the CD bootable.

NOTE. If your hard drive is made by Toshiba, unfortunately, you're out of luck, because Toshiba doesn't provide any diagnostic tool.

Thanks to Broni for the instructions
