after you have run chkdsk ...
go to Event Viewer...Application...scroll to find Entry called winlogon.. double click on that you'll get a Summary...tell us what the fist part of the report about how many and what kind of errors...
the proper thing to do is keep running chkdsk until it does not correct any more errors...
since you lost so much hair when this first happened I highly suggest you back up your data to cd/dvd's as insurance on the possibility that the drive is on its last legs...this should be done as a normal part of your backup strategy


Will do - I am fully backed up

The event viewer errors from the other site is showing controller issues.
I did not read the other thread but if your having controller issues...try reinstalling your chipset drivers


Just reinstalled chipset drivers (VIA_HyperionPro_V524A) I am now going to chkdsk will post back the results when I have them

Thanks

New data cable installed?
If problem still happens then it may be the controller.

My Event Viewer -> system log now has no errors or warnings! Not jumping to conclusions but it has been showing the errors on boot in the error log for previous days...I will attempt a days work on the system tomorrow and report back at the end of the day.

I am a little confused as to what has fixed this, surely its not as simple as reinstalling the via chipset drivers again? Did CCleaner really remove these from my system - hey whilst we are at it how long is the piece of string I am holding :)

Anyway thanks for all the help - I get the impression that if this doesnt work its curtains for the motherboard. I will report back tomorrow night.

Internet beers to all

Most likely not. It is a very good program when used properly. We do not recommend it anymore because of the registry repair section. When people use that part of it, they take the chance of destroying the registry and redering the computer useless.
We do not recommend any registry cleaners or optimizers.

Ok I started this morning (am on her now) it took 4 restarts to get her going and I saw a foxconn screen I have never seen before with what looked like controller errors!

Shame the board isnt available anywhere on the net (600A01-6lRS).

Darn

I am confused as to how I can sit on the machine and not have errors in my Event Viewer -> System - but still have a niggeling feeling there is a big problem. Controller problems arnt black and white?

Thanks

have you run chkdsk /r on all your drives...especially your OS drive
chkdsk was the one that got the drive errors sorted out and started things working right again...but because the errors came back quickly indicates a bad hard drive and since you have replaced them all I would have to agree its time to replace the mobo

only on the external drive, I am not going to do the OS drive as I will be reinstalling and reformatting after the new motherboard install tomorrow

chkdsk was the one that got the drive errors sorted out and started things working right again...but because the errors came back quickly indicates a bad hard drive


The error was a foxconn error just after the foxconn boot screen and before the xp spalsh - it halted the bootup and had controller errors with the same Event Id's as I place up yesterday on the other forum link

and since you have replaced them all I would have to agree its time to replace the mobo


The thing I dont get is how can I be working away and pushing the system quite hard (photoshop, flash, dreamweaver, outlook, firefox) all open now and it has controller errors? I am tempted to leave the new motherboard in its box until I get another WDF.

First time I have installed a new motherboard - very scared but have a very good print out on it.
