partition magic 8 error 983 too many errors

by caraloca / November 27, 2003 4:19 AM PST

Hi, I have amd 1300mhz, 1024mb, win xp pro. 80gb hard drive.
I want to make a partition using partition magic but it alway said Error 983. Too many erros found, process halted.
What can I do?. at the PM8 site they recommend to run a chkdsk /f in a DOS prompt but it did not work.
Or is there another way I can do that partition?.
Thank you

Tell about "it did not work."

That was far too vague. Did the machine fail to run chkdsk?

Partition Magic error 983

I learned from it the hard way, but it was actually most simple problem that I encountered...you just have to clean or secure delete all the free spaces from your hard drive using the Partition Magic 8 or similar cleaning tool and you will do just fine.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
