Do you have more than one hard drive in the machine? Or more than one partition on the drive?

Once in a while the computer freezes and I have to shut it down that way, but it's pretty unusual. Almost every time chkdsk is running it does so after having been powered down normally.

There are two hard drives on the machine, but each just has one partition.

Run the disk check on the other drive. Do it the same way as you did the system drive (c:) only substitute the new drive letter. Assuming the drive is labeled D:, the command would be chkdsk /r d:

Usually when I see chkdsk running on boot, it's accompanied by a message that states "One of the disks needs to be checked for inconsistencies...". It's not always the system drive that triggers the disk check to run.

Computer froze again just now. When it does so it will not bring up task manager to kill processes so I have to restart by holding down power. Is this possibly something that a repair install could fix?

That's what I'd do next if it were my machine.

I'm very curious to see if the repair will address the chkdsk issue.

I ran the repair install this morning. Hopefully it will fix whatever was wrong. I did try to check my chkdsk logfile in the event viewer and am still getting the same error there. Is there a log anywhere which will show me what Windows repaired while running the repair install, or do I just have to wait and see what happens next.

Thanks,

Justin
