Dell Desktop 8300 [modified hardware]
200GB Hitachi HD = Master “C” Drive,
~40GB Maxtor HD = Slave “F” Drive Dedicated To Backups
VisionTek Radeon X1050 = Graphics Card
When booting up, my computer attempts a CHKDSK on drive F: which is a slave drive dedicated to backups. I tried to access it, but I just get an error dialog box says that the drive is unreadable and asks me if I’d like to format now? (I always click no).
I notice that accessing ‘my computer’, C: drive, shortcut windows and a few other double click commands take longer than usual to respond… but eventually do work.
I went to uninstall a program today and can not access the ‘add remove programs’ under the control panel. The control panel comes up and the ‘add remove programs’ window comes up, but then just says “please wait… populating programs” and never completes the task.
Everything seems to be operating. There must be something that I’m overlooking or just unaware of. Can someone help me out here?
