The system returned: (22) Invalid argument The remote host or network may be down. so is that even necessary? the system will restart after that screen and keep going in that cycle until i turn it off At first I had one harddrive with Win98 SE - 40 gigas. If somebody knows, how it is possible to move WinXP to the 80 gigas disk, welcome with the idea. this contact form
My computer won't boot to windows even in safe mode so if it is the hotfix causing the problem I have no idea of how to get to it. Thanks anyways.Any other suggestions?K.campbell Back to top #4 k.campbell k.campbell Topic Starter Members 19 posts OFFLINE Gender:Male Location:Massachusetts Local time:07:21 AM Posted 20 February 2012 - 11:24 PM bump Back It may be that your MBR (Master Boot Record) is damaged. lmhjcr, May 28, 2011 #14 sach2 Major Geek Extraordinaire I guess we can try chkdsk /r again.
Did the installation test and it passed Went to the Basic Quick Test and it stated: results – advanced test required Test status – full read scan of the drive is You see, the problem is not that your computer can't find autochk.exe -- the problem is that it cannot find the system partition itself and therefore cannot traverse the directory path Sep 17, 2003 #3 StormBringer TS Rookie Posts: 2,244 Did you try recovery console as suggested in at least one of those links? It may not even attempt repairs on a drive with a bad SMART status.
In the meantime I will read that MS article. This is a little proprietary Partition Type that Microsoft made up all on their own and has caused nightmares for innocent users all over the world, especially those who use OS/2 There is also a Burn in Test, Low Level Format (Full), Low Level Format (Quick) test as well. If nothing else, I can repair (or replace) the MBR, but would that lose any of the data I have on the hard drive?
After it stated that it found and fixed one or more errors it took almost 2 minutes before it stated (yes I started setting a stopwatch to see how long it Performance & Maintenance Autochk cannot runI don't know if this is the right fourm, but I have an issue. With 8gb used the backup will end up smaller than that after compression. It took me six hours to identify the problem.

The easy and sure way of resolving the problem is to just remove the hotfix from your system. This just kept happening no matter which option I selected.

Thank you so much for the help!K.Campbell Edited by k.campbell, 23 February 2012 - 11:47 AM. http://patricktalkstech.com/cannot-find/cannot-find-server.html Anyway, I started the pc up and connected to the internet and downloaded an antivirus program, installed it and then made sure that it was up to date and that the Basically I am familiar with the procedure. and Recycle Bin 10% (approx.).
May 21, 2005 #24 Chesta1485 TS Rookie Posts: 16 I believe you extract ptedit.exe onto a floppy disk then boot up from that a drive and make sure it says '07' i did a chkdsk /r and it fixed errors, but i still get the same error. PLEASE BACK UP ALL YOUR DATA BEFORE RUNNING THE REPAIR. navigate here I went on line one day to run the Trend Micro online scan but after about 45 minutes I had a screen stating Kernel_Stack_Inpage_Error.
Also sfc didnt work. go here and download the guided help file and follow what it says http://support.microsoft.com/kb/315265 let us know if this helps. when i try to boot into safe mode, it will also restart when it reaches that point.
However, I have not been in a position to test this, as I was assisting this person via telephone. upon restart is when this error started coming up. That is, if this was truly the culprit. :suspiciou Dec 16, 2004 #16 JohnnyBlaze TS Rookie I believe I might have the same problem as Trevor. I am assuming re-certification is repair errors but I don't see that specifically mentioned.
lmhjcr, May 28, 2011 #26 sach2 Major Geek Extraordinaire I would say try the long test again. Or there might be a floppy version if you'd rather use a floppy. then Alt+F4, reboot and Windows works as well as previous. http://patricktalkstech.com/cannot-find/cannot-find-gdi-dll.html once in a while i'll get a blue screen of death right after the autochk error.
I also have a 500 GB Seagate External Hard Drive that I currently use for backing up the xp machine and a 500GB Maxtor that I use for the Vista Laptop.
