Run Chdsk

  Spr 09:07 06 Jul 2004

I have an old Pentium III, 512 memory, Window XP, which I am going to give to my Gd son. The problem is when I start up it goes to safe mode screen etc. it them runs to a Blue Screen saying a Problem Detected, run chdsk. How can I run chdsk or how do I re-install Windows. The HD comes up Secondary Primary Drive how do I get it to Primary Drive.

Hi Spr. I'm not sure about the Chdsk (or is it Chkdsk) command in Windows XP, because I'm using Windows 98se. I think it is a Start - Run command. If your drive is showing as Secondary Master drive, then it's probably connected to the wrong motherboard IDE connector. Open the box, unplug the IDE ribbon cable from the motherboard and plug it into the IDE connector alongside the one you removed it from.
