On start up CKDSK ran everytime, my sound and screensaver would not work, I also could not copy and paste . I ran system recovery using the cd's I bought from HP,(they did not supply these). Now CKDSK does not run at start up but I still have the same problems with sound and screensaver not working, I still can not copy and paste either. The MUTE OFF/MUTE ON message flashes. Does anyone have suggestions for fixing this problem ?
