I am having constant disk corruption issues, and I have cross posted because
I am desperate. I was running the following:

ASUS P4SDX w/P4 2.6GHz CPU
Kingston 512MB 333MHz RAM
WD 160GB HDD (made four primary partitions)
Part 1: Win2k 50GB (FAT32)
Part 2: Win2kAS 15GB (NTFS)
Part 3: Win98 SE 20GB (FAT32)
Part 4: Data 80GB (FAT32)
nVidia GeForce4 Ti 4800SE GPU


I have been getting corruption on primary partition 4 which creates constant
CHK files, but also part 1 (when booted into win2k) randomly. When I get
corruption on the OS partition 1, for example, the entire partition is
trashed and files are jumbled and all data is lost. See attached pic. This
renames the files to gibberish, makes the files unaccessable, and makes the
system unbootable. It seems every time I reboot, the system finds corrupt
files on the LAST partition, partition 4, which it feels it needs to convert
to chk files.

I first replaced the HDD from a WD to a Hitachi of 180GB, but still had
corruption.
I then replaced the 512 MB memory with a different brand and still had the
same level of corruption.
I then replaced the MB with an ASUS P4P800 and still had the same level and
type of corruption.

All that remains unreplaced is the GPU and the CPU.

Is it possible I could have a bad CPU? Could the video card, GPU, be
causing any corruption?
I was offered the possibility that the data is somehow corrupt and causing
the ongoing corruption. Is this possible? Does this sound like a virus?
BTW, after every OS system crash, I need to reinstall the entire system, so
I have become good at restoring Ghost Images.

I'm sorry to hear of your problem, but you need to make you setup a little different!!
First get rid of the 98 partition, nothing but trouble, whatever you think you need it for, w2k server and do to, you made need to reconfigure your server for non 2000 workstations to communitcate. Easy to do., So kill 98, nothing but problems and trouble, SUPER virus getter!! Also make all partitions NTFS, get rid of fat32, get your client up to date/ the worlds upto date we're past fat32!! If you need to do alot with this server get yourself another drive or two. just cause the drives big, doesn't mean you need to have everything on it!!
I'll be available to you if you need via, steve.pennington@wellpoint.com

*Possibly* related to flaky 48 bit LBA support (required for disks > 128 Gb
or so). See:

darren

Did you enable support for 48-bit LBA? You would need to do this for all
your operating systems. This MS Knowledge Base article explains how to do
that for Win2000:

http://support.microsoft.com/?id=305098

I don't know if Win98 supports 48-bit LBA. A quick search in the KB didn't
reveal any patch or method to do this, but you might want to ask in a Win9x
newsgroup about this.

Best regards
