defragmenting c drive problem

  chiquita 17:39 29 Aug 2004

I have Win 98 on a gateway solo 2150 and when trying to defrag, the system pauses on 2% and then struggles to get up to 4%. Goes back to 0 and starts again repeatedly never going above 4% even after 2 hours. The screen saver is switched off. Looking for details to no avail, blank screen. Never had problem on other kit. Does this indicate a mechanical fault, although all else works. Grateful for any help or opinions.
Thanks Chiquita.

disk defragmentor doesnt like hard disk activity ,
close any running programs or better to run it in safemode and allow a few hours to complete. Other commercial utility programs dont have this problem.
