Starting up problem..
Just started today - no new stuff added.
When I start up, I get the windows screen saying it needs to "check file and folders," but at the bottom of the screen where it gives the percentage scanned, it stays at zero, and after a couple of minutes, goes to a blue screen and and says "machine_check_exception STOP:OV000009c,."whatever that means.
If I hit anything on the keyboard (on the first screen) before it attempts to scan, it starts up fine, and runs fine. I tried defrag and doing the "correct errors" thing in My Computer.
I used to get this if the computer was not shut down properly, but it would scan up to 100%. Now it does not start the scan if I let it go thru. ANy one have any ideas how to correct this, or should I expect the whole thing to crash if I keep using it this way?
Thanks for your help in advance.
