I hooked up an old hard drive to my present system, just to reformat the drive ready to sell on. Now my existing drive wont boot up without a warning that my drive may have bad sectors and needs to run scan disk. I left it running a complete scan over night only for message to come back when computer is switched back on. I can exit scandisk and the computer runs normal. any ideas anyone???
'there is something strange goin on because I remember I changed the hard drive last year after I started getting the 'bad sector' reports. Now I put the old drive in my present set up to reformat it and when its removed and my present hard drive is hooked back up I ghet the 'bad sector' messages. I am pretty sure now that there is nothing wrong with either of the drives, but how do I tell the computer this ???'
gasman1, please use the 'Add a new response' facility underneath, so everyone can see.
Its win 98se I changed the original drive because it was reporting 'bad sectors' I know the hard drive is ok I just need a solution to stop it automatically trying to run scandisk and full hard drive check every boot up....
