Windows ME Start up problems

  Wrighty 23:00 12 Aug 2003

Hi there,

Can anyone help me regarding a problem my friend has with ME. On start up before the PC gets to the desktop the screen is black with just a cursor flashing in the top left hand corner of the screen.

When they reset the PC to restart it, the PC sometimes starts to run the scan disk but it stops after a while and does not go any further. The cursor still moves but the scan disk stops around half way.

Has anyone had anything similar that could throw some light on the please.

Much appriecated.

One reason the scan disk stops after a while and does not go any further,could be due to the hardrive having bad sectors on it or Lost Allocation Units.

Have a look at the link though i found in the past the drive was showing signs of going downhill.
