Default Chkdsk

Sorry for all these posts but my comp is really acting funny. I have installed 98 3 times and did an ugrade to XP 3x ( got the disk a while back only for upgrades). Anyways When I got the omp it had a virus cleared it all out. Then I think It came back, formatted did all of the above. Now when I do a CHKDSK lots of errors, can't install anything, and It has random problems anyway to fix bad .dll's or the HDD?

-thanks

sounds like a dogey hdd. if you are sure that you dont have any viruses and spyware and stuff then thats gotta be the problem. theres some more advanced programs out there that are better than chkdsk which i would try. ill try and get some links

Try installing with a different hard drive. Errors from chkdsk, more often than not, mean hard drive issues that can't be fixed.

im not sure where "somewhere" is but here in the uk id try amazon or ebay. as for places like currys they will rip you off unless you find some small computer shop. the disc may only be a bit messed up though. worth trying to fix it. you never know

I was thinking newegga s well, how good of reliance do you get from that site? And off topic question this was the mobo I was getting is it worth it?If not I'll post an HDD i'll get instead of this.

looks like a budget one but still ok. just depends what you need it for. one thing i noticed is it can only support 2gb ram so not very future proof

I needed a mobo that supported 2700 RAM and a 478 intel celeron processor so I could just pop it in and go ( I wanted AGP, PCI-E really tired of PCI!)

since i didn't see an answer about your questionn about newegg i'll answer it. While i havn't used them myself (my first buy from tehre will be this summer) they are supposed to be the best. In all my searches they always have the best prices, and their Customer service is supposted to be the best.
