I did run scannow/sfc but did not see results

by Native_Texan / January 28, 2005 8:04 AM PST

It took approx 1 hr to run sfc/scannow and then my pc gave me no information about errors or what it found if anything. I am having some issues with lap top xp pro 80gb hdd ram 512mb, nvidia 64mb card.
i tried pcpitstop test but it keeps hanging up or freezing when it gets to the test parts about internet upload speed. aol freezes and i have to control alt delete and re start aol. i have run defrag and also ran error checking which it said it replaced a invalid security id with a valid default one (5745)???

I am getting errors it seems with nview when i look at event viewer on the system tab. i think something happened with the nvidia display graphics ????? it has built into the laptop. i have tried
1)software restore,2)system restore,3)xp repair install,4)error checking, and finally 5)sfc/scannow.not to mention disk cleanup, spyware checks etc.. How do I look at results of SCF/scannow???
and what else can i do without loosing all my programs etcc..?? thanks

What does the laptop maker have to say about it?

Make it their problem.

As to losing "stuff". We only lose what we don't backup.
