I have a Compaq laptop with Win98 and recently it has started going through the Windows Scandisk of Drive C checking for fatal errors everytime I start the computer, even though I have shut down the system properly. Does anybody have any ideas why, or what I could do to fix it?
It sounds like that at somepoint it has not gone thru the correct process and is now stuck in a loop....the one way to correct this is to start in safe mode and do a complete scan from there, that sure cure your problem.
I have got to say, you all are great, I have shut my system down several times after following through with your suggestions and I am no longer having the problem. Thanks to each and every one of you for such a prompt and accurate response to my problem.
