Hi all,I usually try to solve problems myself but I am stuck on this one.I tried to run a checkdisk as usual but when I reboot it says file system is raw and auto checkdisk will not run on this type of file system.Does anyone have any ideas.I tried running it from my computer and also a command prompt without any luck,Tony.

Sounds like the drive is damaged

You can run the diagnostic utility from the manufacturer of your hard drive at their support site
It can be found in their downloads section

Thanx for the quick response,will give it a try.I tried a command prompt from the MS site and it says the drive is clean if that meens anything.Am not to good with puters but will give it a try.One other question,would a repair installation solve the problem and whenever I reboot now,sfc /scannow automatically runs,Tony.

I think you mean that...the 3-step chkdsk runs automatically.

I've not known sfc /scannow to ever run automatically or without CD inserted.
