After keying F8 and selecting Safe Mode, the screen will have Safe Mode in blue at the bottom. Clicking on the DOS "safe mode" option would only recycle back to the DOS (or BIOS) screen offering the "safe mode" option. anyway, that is a very nasty bug in Windows XP pre SP1 I'd say.

Defragment on that interval a few times, and assess whether the computer generally feels faster after doing so. This is definitely not normal behaviour.

If the answer is no, defrag less frequently.Repeat a few times, and you'll soon settle into a frequency that works well for you.-- Ken BlakePlease Reply to the Newsgroup Related Resources asked 5 years ago viewed 887 times active 5 years ago Upcoming Events 2017 Community Moderator Election ends Mar 28 Related 2chkdsk doesn't repair the file system corruption I have, now Is crime an issue in the US countryside, especially for a cyclist? how can i run CHKDSK with /F (fix) chkdsk still doesn't run at the reboot.

Can it replace an updated file with an older one and cause problems?

Does that sound like a good time > schedule? Say good by to the invoices that you were going to mail tonight at the close of business. CHKDSK find these errors, exports the segments owned by both files, and purifies your filesystem (by deleting files that were cross allocated). useful reference WARNING!

Windows XP Pro, 160gb hard drive with a partition right in the middle, so I get disks D and E, with a separate 20gb C drive, all have NTFS partition or I get this happening when I am running computers from a generator.

solved Black screen after restart. Then you can use that CD to make a repair install if needed. Best wishes and thanks in advance Sergio (finnerss) Dec 17, 2004 #4 HoopaJoop TS Rookie Posts: 90 This is an interesting problem. My question is why ?

I have an installation CD that includes SP1 in case I have to reinstall.Simple : when you have no problem to boot Windows XP in safe mode with the key F8 Ialso tried Drive Image 7, and a few other backup programs and NONE ofthem would work correctly.From now on I'll just use the built-in backup built into the IBMThinkpads.
