run chkdsk /r again on the OS drive until it does not not find or fix any errors...


I am a little unsure as to what is considred an error here as it isnt saying "error" (chkdsk run three times in total on C: now)

are these errors?

Cleaning up 2 unused index entries from index $SII of file 0x9.
Cleaning up 2 unused index entries from index $SDH of file 0x9.
Cleaning up 2 unused security descriptors.



Full result:

OK...now use the disk cleanup tool to get rid of all the old chkdsk logs and other useless junk
Click Start...then click Run... In the Open box, type in cleanmgr and then click OK...
in the small window that opens make sure your OS drive is selected ...usually C: then click ok

after thats done defrag the OS drive...
I use and recommend diskeeper lite...its here

Using windows defrag (had an error on diskkeeper lite to do with mmc and a snap-in problem, so bored of errors so ditched it) - fingers crossed this all works - happy your help has been invaluable, thank you

about the only way to use the built in defragger and get it to complete is to boot into safe mode and run it from there...even then it could run overnite to finish...figure on 8 hours or so ...
if you haven't started it yet try Smart Defrag 1.20...from here.....you only need to run a defrag once per month...unless your adding and deleting lots and lots of files...

try Smart Defrag 1.20...from here


Ran the internal one and it did take forever, I have used smart defrag before will reinstall that.

So this morning she started, but first time the foxconn screen appeared and then i got a flashing underscore top left, I left it for a min and nothing happened. So I killed it and restarted - second time round she booted fine and I am sat here now (not as happy as I should be but happy I can do a days work)

It still doesnt feel quite right - but I have disconnected my external drive and will plug that in for backup every few hours and then remove it. If I get DWF or she wont boot I will change the motherboard over - for the moment I have a fierce deadline to meet by the end of the month(which is now two days closer than it should be)!

Computers know right? They know when to cause problems and when not to? I am sure of this... murphys law

Thanks

So the story isn't over yet!

I have had a few really productive days and yesterday she started to lag a little - so I ran chkdsk c: /r again. A strange thing happened but first to explain something.

Since my chkdsk and work done on monday I havent been getting any logs at all in my event viewer->system, great i though there are no problems. On heignsight thats no the case...

After my chkdsk last night (three of them) my event viewer->system logs have come back and yes I still have the following error:

Source: Disk
Time: 07:18:08
Category: None
Type: Error
EventID: 11

The driver detected a controller error on \Device\Harddisk0\D.

This has happened three times this morning. I am also still getting warnings on my external drive! (same as before I am not plugging her back in)

EventId:51
source:disk
An error was detected on device:
\Device\Harddisk1\D
during a paging opertaion


this has also appeared again!

EventId: 5
Source:atapi
A parity error was detected on \Device\Ide\IdePort0.

For more information, see Help and Support Center at http://go.microsoft....link/events.asp.


So I cant say for sure as my system logs were blank - but it looks like this problem never actually went away?

Ok so I am at a loss as to what to do. Shall I replace the motherboard and reformat and reinstall on the current harddrive? (that will at least tell me if its the motehrboard or the hard drive right?)

Or shall I continue to run this system - its working right now. Send of the broken harddrive from before as it is still under RMA with WD thne when it gets back next week (they are very quick) put the new motehrboard and hard drive in together?

What do you rekon guys?

I am skint and want as little downtime as possible. And am very scared about changing my motherboard. What do you feel this problem is screaming at you... I mean will a new motherboard fix it? Aggggg!?!
