250G ntfs corrupt ,no virus,surface 100% ok,whats wrong
Jun 15, 2009, 12:57 PM
i have a 14mth old maxstor stm 3250310AS 250G drive on my XP SP2
working fine & all of a sudden i get chkdsk complaining on xp bootup of ntfs probs ,
& finally chkdsk itself terminates with 'unspecified error'
seatools for dos & spinrite(dos) can find anything wrong with disk,
even after 15hr burn in.
my pc is multiboot so to rule out malware/virus i booted into another windows xp
on a differnt disk & formated & copy files to 250G drive from there.
same problem, 250g drive ntfs gets corrupted
did memtest86,all ok. what could be wrong? thx

Hi nokreg, maybe your boot record was corrupted? Have you tried repairing your XP installation?

reformat the disk, if it resumes problematic operation, fling it
