Question about HP Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Checking file system on C: The type of the file system is NTFS. I turn on my hp pavillion ze4400 and get a blue screen with this message: One of your disks needs to be checked for consistency. You may cancel the disk check, but it is strongly recommended that you continue. Windows will now check the disk. CHKDSK is verifying files (stage 1 of 3)... file verification completed. CHKDSK is verifi\ying indexes (stage 2 of 3)... 1 percent completed. It stops there and nothing else changes after a day of running my laptop and waiting for indexes to be completed. I dont know what to do.

A blue screen pops up when i turn on my computer statint that a problem has been detected and windows has shut down the code on the screen is 0x00000024-(0x00190203, 0x86f70008, 0xc0000102, 0x00000000)


Hi,
This stop error means that your ntfs file system is corrupt (damage in the file system, bad hard drive data, corrupt SCSI or IDE drivers or a corrupt ntfs.sys file).
Try the following:
- Enter to Recovery Console (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/307654/en-us)
- Run the command: CHKDSK C: /F
- Restart the computer
If you are unable to load Windows there is a chance that your partition is corrupt beyond repair. In that case, you need to reformat the partition to be able to use it again.
Before this, and if you do not have a backup, you should consult a technician because you can try installing the faulty disk in another PC to try to recover the data.
Good luck!

Way to Speed Up Windows Xp by defragmenting disk


Ensure that Windows XP is utilizing the NTFS file system. If you're not sure, here's how to check: First, double-click the My Computer icon, right-click on the C: Drive, then select Properties. Next, examine the File System type; if it says FAT32, then back-up any important data. Next, click Start, click Run, type CMD, and then click OK. At the prompt, type CONVERT C: /FS:NTFS and press the Enter key. This process may take a while; it's important that the computer be uninterrupted and virus-free. The file system used by the boot-able drive will be either FAT32 or NTFS. I highly recommend NTFS for its superior security, reliability, and efficiency with larger disk drives.

Convert FAT or FAT32 File system into NTFS


You can increase the performance of your computer using NTFS (New Technology File System) hard drive volume with windows XP, because this advance file system provides some extra features, for example security, reliability, file encryption and Compression features.
But if you are still using old file systems like FAT or FAT32, you can covert it into NTFS with a simple command. The interesting thing is that you can convert your hard drive volumes file system without losing data on the drive. Follow the giving steps to convert FAT or FAT32 partition to NTFS:
  • First go to Start button then click on Run option.
  • Now type here “CMD” and press Ok to open command prompt.
  • At the command prompt type convert drive letter name: /fs:ntfs
  • For example if you want to convert drive E to NTFS then the command will be “convert e: /fs:ntfs”.
  • Now restart your computer and enjoy NTFS features, but keep in mind you cannot covert back it to FAT or FAT32 again.

Blue Screen


Use the following steps to replace the missing files when Windows cannot start.

  1. Turn the computer on and place the first recovery disc into the top drive.
  2. After inserting the disc, turn the computer off, wait about ten seconds, and turn the computer on again.
  3. If an HP Recovery screen displays "Press any key to continue...", press the spacebar.
  4. To continue, read the warning screen and click OK.
  5. Click Advanced Options at the top of the screen.
  6. Click Selective Recovery.
  7. Read the Select Files to Restore window that appears.
  8. Type the name of the file. For example, if the error message is MNYUTIL.DLL is linked to missing export MFC42.DLL, type MFC*.DLL.
  9. Click OK. If there is more than one recovery disc, it may be necessary to insert another disc when prompted.
  10. When therecovery process has finished copying files, remove the disc andrestart the computer. If problems, persist it may be necessary toperform a system restore or a non-destructive recovery.

You need to finish that disk check on all drives on your system to check for corruption. Its the safest thing to do.

After that is done, defragment your drive for extra safety.

From the desktop, select My Computer, right click each installed hard drive on your computer, select Properties, Tools and run both error checking and defragmentation one after another.

If you have corrupted removable drives like USB dongles or floppies, they can be checked later separately.
