Can't logon to PC after scandisk
Posted on 2006-03-29
I have a really weird problem with a Windows 2000 hard drive. The HD wouldn't boot, so I put it as a slave into another PC. It booted up, but it scanned the disk automatically during the first boot. It found a lot of bad files, etc and supposed fixed them. Now when I try to log on to the PC, it gives an error about "Limited virtual memory" and that I need to adjust the page file, however, it won't let me go there, it just returns to the logon screen again. I took the slave hard drive out, and it still does this with just the original master hard drive in it (that previous to this had no problems at all). It does the same thing when I try to boot in safe mode.
So how can I adjust page file size if I can't log on to the PC? Why would a problem on the format of the slave hard drive cause the master hard drive not to allow me to log on?
