Default Re: chkdsk

Thanks for the suggestion. Now I've discovered I can't get the computer to get into Safe Mode. I have followed all the directions from help.

Any suggestions?

Thanks.
Laura

Yes I hit f8 on startup, it just sat there, nothing happened. Maybe I didn't let it sit long enough - I am not known for my patience. Will try again.........

Try to keep tapping f8, it should do it,

[and when the computer first boots you should see a screen of your motherboard brand up] / ignore that if you dont understand

Well I had posted a last resort command for chkdsk but since you go it going it's redundant.
