keeps returning to checkdisk menu

by benceneta / June 28, 2006 4:44 PM PDT

I scheduled a checkdisk on my drive c: checking both automatically fix file system errors and scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors options. it does the scanning completely but when i restart the pc, windows does not load and it goes back to the checkdisk menu again. Even if i let it complete another scan, it keeps coming back to the checkdisk menu, unless i interrupt it and choose starting the pc at last known good configuration option. what do u think can i do with this?
Also, i cannot create a restore point with system restore, and most of my restore points are lost. I would appreciate your suggestions. Thanks in advance.

*Im using a new hard drive, the windows files are copied from my old hard disk using DiskWizard.

1. Double check your settings on automatic Chkdsk. It may be set to scan at each re-boot

2. New drive .... run diagnogsitc utility on drive. I've seen new drives fail.

3. Possible kernal Windows files corrupt. If old drive had issues the cloning procedure brought them over to the new drive.

3a. run system file checker (sfc) in windows. How to: Insert CD, close splash screen. Start -> run ''type'' CMD. In command prompt ''type'' sfc /scannow.

3b. Lastly Windows repair, back up your data first.
