what is drive H? is it a HDD, memory card? this error can be caused by improper removal of a device while windows was working with it. it can also be caused by bad sectors or a failing controller on a HDD. if its a memory card, i wouldn't worry to much about it, check if the times of errors corilate to when you unplugged it. if its a HDD i would run a pc doctor check and MHDD on it to check/repair bad sectors. if the controller or mechanics fail then you need a new HDD. for a quick check you can download many programs to read the SMART data, but this is just a snapshot of drive health; not a definitive diagnosis.

The drive might be failing, I'd advise to backup and try to get a new drive instead.

wow ok.. first off short of hardware failure if you have the time.. you can fix the os. that being said... sounds like you have your work cut out.

First, make sure all viri are gone, i recomend ubcd4win to boot from and scan the system to do this.

Second, verify hardware... PC check or pc doctor have tools to do this, there are freeware programs out there. one program i use ALOT for HDD's is MHDD, it will scan all your sectors and give you read times. This will also remap a bad sector, ALL HDD's have bad sectors and spares to map to... contrary to alot of tech shops a dead sector or two or 30 does not difinitivly indicate a failing drive. run mechainical stresst tetsts and long smart tests to ensure the drive is bad. if the drive is good and mhdd lists all grey sectors (2-5 greens isnt bad, reds need to be repaired.) then the drive is ok to work with assuming it passes all other tests.

on to the OS, i gather you are running XP, burn a XP SP2 ISO and stick it in your drive. open a admin command prompt and enter : sfc /scannow press enter. This will run a checek on all system files and replace as needed. after that go install sp3. this should solve any os errors.

to install on a new HDD, UNPLUG your current drive... i cant tell you how many times ive accidently formatted the wrong drive and had to spend a good 5 hours recoverying all the damn files... then startup the xp setup installing any raid drivers you need with F6 at the start. then you will hit enter to continue, F8 to agree, esc to not repair, then select the drive, D to delete, L to confirm, C to create new partition, Enter to use full size, Then enter again to install to new partition, quick formatt or full, i prefer full on drives with viri or questionable sectors. follow the on screen instronstrions from there.

MHDD, load the the program, F4 is your magic key, select a drive at the start (what ever number it coresponds to) then press enter with your selection typed in and hit F4 to start scan options, use arrows to highlight and enter to change, then F4 again to start the scan. shift F3 to rescan buss. (brings you to first menue)

I use Easus data recovery wizzard pro - this is a more complex more indepth program that can recover lost files or partical files (i have taken 6GB off a 4GB flash drive before), get data back for NTFS and FAT - this is a simple stright forward easy program. or photorec on linux live cd - advanced CLI with switches and lots of commands.

use power iso to burn the disk, it dont care what media is in there... or what the iso is ment for, and its FREE

install windows vista before XP, vista before linux, in that ordder. use the vista disk to add boot selections to vista, XP uses boot.ini, vista and 7 use a boot loader... command to rebuild XP boot.ini is in the recovery console on the xp disk and is: bootcfg /rebuild comand on 7 and vista is bootrec /rebuild (this can very depending on build and verision of os) you may need to force NT60 or manualy remove the boot folder from C: to use bootrec under some builds of vista/7. if you install windows after linux it can kill the linux boot loader, most linux disks such as fedora allow you to add preinstalled os's to the boot options.

to format a drive you can not be active on it or have any active files. in cli its format :C you can use your windows disk or any boot disk, or if you install a new os on a second drive format it as a slave.

for free space.. download spacemonger it will give you a lay out of used files and folder sizes on your HDD. second if you plan to change HDD, and you have a seagate you get a free copy of achronis (called disk director) this program can image your main drive to any other once installed. if you dont have it there are tools out there such as norton ghost or the linux live cd, sector by sector copy.

as far as a 1TB drive... i recomend never using anything over a 500GB outside of a raid. if they fail you loose ALOT of data. if you can id recomend a raid 5 3+ 1TB drives, or a Raid 1 with two 1TB drives.

you show alot of files errors, get pccheck or pcdoctors and run ALL the MB/CPU/HDD tests. and get memtest86+ and test your ram. ordder to test a comp in, RAM - CPU - MB -HDD controller - HDD - extra crap. in this ordder you will make sure everything needed for the next test is stable below it.

for the isses with the CD drive, it sounds like the drive is failing or you have bad rails coming from your PSU, assuming the error message is literal. id do a google search for nero errors and see what others found when getting that error.

if the SFC fails and can not replace all the files you can run a repair off the XP disk by booting from it, hitting enter, esc and R to repair if you are not given a screen to hit R on and are brought stright to the install drive screen then you need to delete and rebuild the boot.ini and try again with a single entry. (common issue)

i think i got it all, just got back from retail sale and BB black friday i dont care that is all misspelt... good night

I think that some of your problems could be explained by a virus infection, are you sure that you have completely removed any viruses. I would recommend that you download and use Malwarebytes anti- mailware program as this is currently the best anti virus program at actually detecting and removing any viruses. The program is not free but you can use it for 30 days which is long enough to sort out some of your problems.

You don’t need to do this, always install the older operating system first and then you don’t need to bother about repairing the boot sectors.

go to run, then type regedit and hit enter. go to file - export and save a copy of your registery. (i normaly save to root of C under an easy name.. old habbit from the dos days). then fix the problums, find the hardware version of pc doc on a boot disk and run the rest of the tests. once they all pass then your good to go.

programs that "fix' registry 'errors' can often screw alot of things up, make sure you scan through the errors its listing, if any of them seem odd then uncheck the fix for it. its normal to have lots of mislinked files, or missing shortcuts, dll's that arnt used anymore... so its not uncommon and infact is compleatly normal for you to have 7263 errors if you have never scaned your reg before...

System restore not working, regedit and task manager not working are all common signs that you had (have) a virus. The virus does this so as to make it difficult for you to remove it. It is easy to search the internet for instructions on how to re-enable them, if you can’t find the instructions ask here and I will find them for you.

there is a disk... its one of hte most illigal iso's you could ever download... if that doset bother you then google 'hirens' 10.0 is the latest. otherwise check around for some freeware tests, you can run prime95 in windows to test cpu/memory, and mhdd for the HDD, then hope the rest of the MB is good. mem86 is easily found, run that to test ram.

once you test out your HDD and make sure its good then go download ultimate boot cd 4 windows and boot of it, it takes a bit to build but its not to hard to make a basic disk. on that are many antivirus programs that you can scan your comp with. since its an offline scan you have 100% access to your HDD and can remove any infections. after that you need to modify your group policy settings to be allowed to access task manager and regedit again. all in all your looking at about 10 hours of work (alot of it babysitting) perhaps more with the learning curve.

for partition magic that is correct, but the rest of them.. they are not. pc doc is a 800.00 kit (inclues loop back and hardware testing equipment, figure 500 of this is software cost) with markup of course. pccheck is made by eurosoft and very much alive, geeksquad has corperate liscences for this software. achronis - also not free, 40 bucks for single home use or about 350 for single disk director use. norton ghost is about 150 for single use usage, i think 12.0 is most recent. spinwrite is 80 bucks for single use.

there are ALOT of freeware and open source programs on the disk, dont get me wrong.. but its got at least 10K bucks worth of corperate liscence software and 4K+ of single use software on it...

Don’t forget that these are the DOS version of the programs; Hiren says on the web that all of the software is legal, maybe he is wrong. The Wikipedia entry for this says that

Quote:
While this collection of tools can be very useful, potential users should note that many of the tools are commercial applications that have not been legally licensed for redistribution, and so download/use/sharing of Hiren's BootCD may be illegal (depending on your legal jurisdiction).


As I don't know the copyright laws of the USA I can't comment but I think it is legal in my country.

to everyone: it can be drive failure but that being said
this works in XP: in Device Manager click the + next to Universal Serial Bus Controllers to display the list, then right click and uninstall each one. If you have a USB mouse you may lose it, so you'll then have to use keyboard commands to uninstall more in the list (the "list" icon key to the right of the windows key is right click), if you lose your keyboard, then note what's left undone in the list, force reboot, let everything USB reinstall themselves then (if your problem is not already fixed) continue with the items that were not previously uninstalled in the list, leaving the ones you already did before alone. This reinstalls all the USB drivers. Has "fixed" 2 of my drives with "delayed write failed" error.

Hope this helps.
