C:/ disk checking FAT32 on start up

  gemma_loan 23:02 27 Jan 2005

Hi,Just wondering if anyone could help!
Every time I start me computer it says my c drive needs to be checked for consistancy and that the type of file is FAT32, this happens even when I close my computer down properly.
Im running Xp on a 4 year old computer so I dont know whether this has anything to do with it - but its driving me mad!
Thanks for any help1

It sounds like it could be a HDD problem. Try running MaxBlast click here It will show any problems with your drive.
