I am using xp sp2. built new machine 6 months ago. all new parts.

keep getting disk errors. machine will boot to windows then freeze. reboot. safe mode. chkdsk. each time I do this it finds a stack of errors. has been going on for a few months. machine is on most of the time and the error seems to occur when I reboot.

Any help greatly appreciated. The Hard Disk is only 6 months old. no indication of any bad sectors according to chkdsk.

No idea what to do from here. is this a software problem? hardware problem? how do I work out whats causing it?

thanks to anyone who's good with this stuff. Im stumped!

I would suggest downloading a free diagnostic utility from the manufacturer of your hard drive to diagnose possible problems with your drive.
