Chkdsk hangs at 97% every time on Win XP

Win XP is rebooting every 5 minutes or so.  I tried to run CHKDSK /F many times, but the system always hangs at 97% on the first step of CHKDSK.  Also, the system hangs when running the virus scan, but not always at the same point.  No other repeatable factors. Help please..joe

Hi joejensen,
you may want to download and run the manufacturer utilities on the drive to verify its integrity.
common manufacturer websites:
Fujitsu Hard Drives:

IBM Hard Drives:

Sounds like a MDG Error in your MBR offset at your ABC Sector by the PPG.

It can be a hardware error too. Run hardware diagnostics to test the system. ;)

yeah, it seems not (only) the HDD's problem.
Try the safe mode of the WinXP to see if it still has the same problem.
If lucky, you can just resolve the pro. by doing this.

Any pro , we can discuss here,

Good luck

Thanks for all the suggestions.  It turned out that the Intel Disk Optimizer driver was corrupted.  I rolled back the storage driver and all is fixed.  thanks...joe
