Volume contains unrecoverable errors???

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
My XP Pro computer has been blue screening every day for the past week so I decided to reboot and run chkdsk /r and see what it came up with. 75% through it came up with the following error:

"The volume contains one or more unrecoverable errors."

I've since run 3 different DFT's including the WD Lifeguard Tools (it's a WD Sata driver). I had also just re-installed XP on the machine about 2-3 days b4 I started getting these BSOD's. If my HD is coming up clean, what could my problem be?

I think your Hdd is toast, or at least that was it sounds like to me...

It's possible that you just have a dodgy Windows install and corrupt files from the previous o/s are creating the errors. Did you format the drive before re-installing? I always format a couple of times before reinstalling over a previous o/s just to help try and get rid of any left over data that may cause trouble.

Always when I suspect a problem with my HD.

Are there any good utilities for formatting a drive since I can't boot to windows? I have Hirens BootCD if there is anything on there.

I use 'Ultimate boot cd'? There are tools on there that you can use to format your drive.

Cool I have that too but it's been a while since I used it. I'll give it a try. Thanks.

Well I formatted fully a few times and then tried to re-install Windows. Right when it's about to get to the screen where you have to hit enter to continue, it Blue Screens with a x7B stop error.

Have you checked your RAM?

Could be a ram Problem.
If you get the chance put ur HDD into another computer and do the scans there.
