Hi Everyone,

 

Just a bit of a nagging query really on a Windows 7 32bit Home Premium.

 

Just a lately it has taken three attempts to boot the system .Once running there appears to be no visibly problem, just the 3 attempts before it will load.....

 

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

 

Regards

Tony :smash:

 Run chkdsk and have it scan for and attempt repair of bad sectors.  It sounds like you have hard drive problems.  I'd also run the system performance report from the Performance Information and Tools applet of the Control Panel paying particular attention to the hard drive's SMART data.

 

Good luck.


Everyone with a computer should back his system up to an external hard drive regularly.  :thumbsup:

You can also go to Event Viewer, Applications and Services, and look for the error messages that were logged when you tried to start it up. That should provide some clues as to what the problem might be.
