W2k Startup

  stylehurst 14:08 14 May 2004

I run W2k SP4 and have recently had the following problem occur:
On startup Chkdsk always runs saying there is a problem on the C drive.
A check of the Event Log shows the following:
System Log
"Error detected on hard drive during paging operation"
Application Log: Winlogon
"Cleaning minor inconsistencies
Cleaning 4 unused index entries from index $S11 of file 0x9
Cleaning 4 unused entries from index $SDH of file 0x9
Cleaning 4 unused security descriptors"

A full chkdsk states no bad sectors

Has anybody else experienced this problem & is there a cure other than stopping chkdsk from running at startup.
A complete re-format & re-install does not solve the problem.

By-passing chkdsk does not seem to cause problems.
A search of the MS site in respect of this problem in W2k does not come up with any answers.

Any suggestions and/or explanation would be welcome.

I haven't seen this error my self stylehurst but it may be logged if you click here
You will need the Event ID number and the source of the error.

Hi recap
Thanks for the site info, but doesn't help I'm afraid, faault doesn't generate an ID number.

Can you install w2k on another partition and see if same occurs, or changing paging? How many hd/partitions? (If you've formatted and reinstalled, updates take 2 -3 on b/b.)

Have 3 partitions; tried installation on another partition, same result.
Don't understand last part of message "updates take 2-3 on b/b".
Can you elaborate.

The w2k updates, when installing os from my install disc, takes 2 -3 hours to d/load and install. Are all partitions same hd? If so try running hd diagnostic from site maker.

Don't know why your updating should take so long, mine is a lot quicker.
What HD diagnostic are you using & from what site?

your HDD Make stylehurst, has a diagnostic tool from their site, e.g maxtor has a DOS version of maxblast, so find your make and goto their site.

hope this helps
