When I turn the computer on I get the famous, some parts of your hard disk may contain erros.and then it will start to check the disk. I let this run once already which took about 5 hrs, then I used nortons and did it again, yet I am still getting this error at start-up. Anyone have any ideas on what I could possibily do about this ? Your help would be greatly appreciated, thank you. It is win98

Is it the Windows error that you did not Shutdown properly and ScanDisk need to run?

Your hard drive may be going bad. I recommend you download and run a hard drive diagnosis tool from the manufacture of your hard drive.

When you power on the PC the BIOS displays a hardware list, which should list the manufacture. Or you may want to give a call to the person who built it.

Cool, and thanks for letting us know.

I would run ScanDisk with the Thorough option enabled just to be safe.

Have a Happy New Year.
