I had to do a Full System Recovery so I could get on the Desktop.
Here are the problems I'm encountering:
After I boot up the system the 1st screen is the COMPAQ logo,
the next screen is a all BLACK screen with WHITE writing.
The system should keep going until it loads the desktop, but it stops dead until I do what I'm getting ready to explain.
Down at the bottom of the screen this is what it says:
Hard disk failure is imminent. Please back up your hard disk and replace it.
Press F1 for set up, F2 to continue.
In order to get to the next screen, I press F2 to continue, than after that, the Microsoft logo appears then, an all BLUE screen appears which says:
Checking file system on D:
The type of the file system is NTFS.
One of your disk needs to be checked for consistency.
Then it gives you 10 seconds to make a decision, either to let the system do it's thing or you can hit any key to stop this process .....
If I let the process go, here's what it does:
File record segment 0000 is unreadable.
Every number has a separate line. It takes 15-20 mins. for this process to finish.
Let me explain something here. Before I did the Full System Restore, after the process ended, the all blue screen went dead too, but now it takes me to the desktop. .... So there you have it.
The next set of problems are after I get up on the desktop. While it's loading there are two boxes that pop up.
Projects\wxKernel\SRC\Win32\con\CORE\cm CodeModule. cpp: 90m_Code Handle ! = NULL
ddcmigrate.exe - Application Error
the application failed to initialize properly (0x80000003).
What I noticed about these two boxes are when there is some kind of movement, meaning, downloading, installing, uninstalling or something that is taking place on the system and when the desktop is loading up.
Next problem: How do I fix IE? There are no tabs at the top of IE,
File, Edit, View etc. I can't do any of the things that I need to do because the tabs have disappeared.
Thanks for the help that anyone can offer.
