What was the result of the chkdsk?
we will need to get the CD burner working or use another computer. We will need to do the memory and hard drive checks.

For the hard drive checks, we prefer the bootable CD, but lets try the windows version and see what it gives us.

Hi rshaffer61 and runner123 (nice to meet you)

Well, I was able to finally burn the cd using the second software you recommended, but not without some concern. It looked good at first, but then it went into a 'holding pattern' for about 25+ minutes, which I knew did not seem right. So I started over and with some delay it finally was able to make it through in a matter of minutes. We'll (your recommendation of course) will have to look into this issue at some point later on.

The system still boots up slow (maybe too much is still loading)...but will address that after the HD test. I also noticed that the program that would allow Windows to boot up to an 'boot session' (not safe-mode) no longer shows up for me to choose when the system boots up.

I am going to see if the burn physically worked and will run it to check the HD. Will update you, when completed. Thanks.

672 KB in bad sectors.

The drive is showing some problems. Not a big amount but may be a contributing factor.

Hopefully the HD diagnostics will shed more light on this. :D

Yeah the drive seems to be a problem.
We can try a Repair Installation but i think with the bad sectors on the drive the errors are going to continue to happen.

:D You can try the diagnostics again and re-try the repair part of it again.
I would actually suggest a new hard drive.

hello rshaffer61 and 123runner,

:D

Those were the results from yesterday, as you can see. I did follow the prompts from the DOS Seatools and it was able to fix a certain number of the errors. I think once it reaches that point it does not fix the rest and considers the drive 'failed.' Unless your experience brings another view?

What do you recommend for the next step?

Thanks for your assistance.

I think the time has come to replace the drive. Apparently the sectors that are unrepairable store key elements of the OS.
Short of a repair installation I don't see any other way to resolve this. I can't guarantee even a repair installation will resolve the issue as the problem seems to be hardware and not software. :D

Yikes! :D I think the icon tells it all! It's probably best to start off fresh, then to worry about the drive not working correctly.

Well, I guess some good came come from this because I happen to have a 'new' internal HD - Western Digital WD800JB.

Would you please assist me with the setup/transfer?

Thanks so much!

Not sure what you want to transfer exactly.
The setup is pretty easy. Just set the jumper on the back of the drive for the same thing the old drive is set as.
Now if you want to move data that is easy after you get your OS reloaded on the new drive.

I have the the Western Digital WD800JB, which was actually going to be installed in the system as a 2nd hard drive a while back. I was able to install it a while ago, but I never did get it fully ready (format etc.) for the system to recognize it. But it would probably be a good idea for me to check - refresh my memory - on how it was installed. The hard drive came with a CD called Data Lifeguard Tools.

How does one install the new HD as a master when they want to transfer items onto it from the same system - including the operating system - but switching it from SP2 to SP3 (info below regarding this.)

The system originally ran Windows ME (from Compaq) but upgraded to Windows Pro with from CD when it was released. I now have the newer reinstallation CD of the operating system Windows XP Pro with Service Pack 3. Certain that it has no drivers or anything for the computer components (IE. mother board, CD-R drive, DVD drive).

Not sure, but when we installed the XP SP2 I think it made a partition on the hard drive. So I am thinking that there could be items on the system 'left over' from ME -- is that possible?

Just thought I would give you some additional information pertaining to the OS setup and basic info on what I know about the new hard drive. Thanks again for your support and assistance. Much appreciated to get me through this.
