This occurs when a cluster is listed as belonging to a file, but the volume bitmap does not list it as used. Unfortunately NDD nor CHKDSK can correct this cross link. You'll need to delete and rebuild the partition after backing up your data of course, but you may lose data during the copy if any data is on one of the bad clusters.

From a quick search, it looks like you need to do a chkdsk (check disk, a windows tool). easiest way to do it:
go to my computer >> right-click on your OS hard drive (C:, normally) >> go to properties >> click the tools tab >> under the Error-checking section, click Check Now >> select both check-boxes and click start
you should be prompted that you can't check the disk because it is in use, and that you can automatically scan it on the next reboot. agree and reboot.
hopefully that will fix you up!

My acer 5735 laptop sreen stays black at start up


Hi,

First of all, go to advanced boot options, and see whether last known good configuration works or not

can you boot into safe mode? If so, try to do system restore, if that doesn't work as well, try to do a clean boot, followed by an advanced clean boot and a hardware clean boot.. these steps might help ..

clean boot : http://support.microsoft.com/kb/310353

advanced clean boot : http://support.microsoft.com/kb/316434

hardware clean boot :
Follow the steps below to perform hardware clean boot
1. Right click on My Computer -> Properties
2. Hardware Tab -> Device Manager
3. Right Click on Sound Card, Video Adapter, Network Adapter one by one and click disable
4. Reboot the computer. If the problem is fixed then you can enable the hardware devices one by one to find the exact device that cause the problem

If these steps don't solve the problem, unplug any external devices from your computer and see whether that resolves the problem .

If nothing works, try doing system restore from winre, if that doesn't work as well, you'd have to do that manually,

try these steps,
go to WinRE) open folder C:\Windows\System32\config

and rename these files:

BCD-TEMPLATE ->BCD-TEMPLATE.OLD
DEFAULT->DEFAULT.OLD
SAM ->SAM.OLD
SECURITY ->SECURITY.OLD
SOFTWARE ->SOFTWARE.OLD
SYSTEM ->SYSTEM.OLD

(don't change COMPONENTS file because system don't store any copy of this file,BCD-Template system will reconstruct automatically when you boot into WinRE)

Next navigate to C:\Windows\System32\config\RegBack folder and copy all items to C:\Windows\System32\config

Next boot into WinRE and try again restore system to previous checkpoint.

The last option would be to format your root drive and install the OS again..

Hope that helps, and good luck

Windows xp pro will not boot with new hard drive


Its hard to tell just like this without having the computer in hand to check and test the jumpers and connection and all, but quick like this i think it might be a trojan virus that corrupted the boot sectors of the old hard drive, and when you copied the stuff from the old to the new, the virus followed and infected the boot sectors of the new one too. Try to reformat completely using the original windows install disk, and not the system restore/reinstall disk and reinstall windows after the format with the original windows disk again. If I was right, it should boot up OK with a fresh format and reinstall with the real windows CD, then install a virus scan and a spyware scan and scan and clean the old drive completely 2 or 3 times to be sure theres nothing bad left on it, then try to copy the whole disc, but skip the Windows repertory, the Program Files one too and the Documents and settings one also, cause those 3 are the ones most prone to corrupting a fresh install even if there is not any viruses in them. If it does not boot up OK after formating and reinstalling Windows though and says it's unbootable, then either there is a config error in the BIOS of the laptop, or the IDE controller that drives the disk is defective. If it's the BIOS settings, it's gonna be easy enough just changing the settings and won't cost you too much, and if its the IDE controller... then that's another story cause it's integrated in the motherboard like any other computer, so basically another computer will cost less than a new motherboard for a laptop. So if that is the case and the IDE controller is shot, you can still try to use an external USB drive to run the computer but not all computers support booting from the USB though, so before buying a brand new external drive, check the BIOS first to see if it does support USB booting.

No WindowsXP, corrupt file windows\system32\config\system


Sad to say but alot of the computer manufacturers send Windows install/restore disks that are basically hardwired to the original hardware setup. The only real solution if you cannot install over your old setup would be to purchase the full version of the Windows o/s you want to install. Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer. Thanks.

Transferring info from one hard drive to another


No that wont work.  :)

You will never be able to copy all the files from windows.

Here is my suggestion.

Their are several programs out their to help you accomplish a disk to disk copy. I personally use Norton Ghost. Action True image is another.

This particular program i have found extremely reliable.is Norton Ghost 2003. This is a hard drive cloning software that runs from dos.

When you are running windows, you cant copy by drag and drop, all the files. Windows just wont let you move the important files.

You could purchase norton ghost 2007. That software is designed to work from windows. You can install it and then clone the running drive onto the new fresh drive.

After you clone the drive, you can just set it to "active" and switch the boot order in the bios. Or just unplug the old drive.

I can assist you in getting a copy of norton ghost dos edition, and clone the drive. However it would require direct connection to your pc, and phone support to walk you threw it once your into dos.
