Getting Inaccessible Boot Device blue screen of death in Windows 2000 server.   Chkdsk /r ran 2X already, always finds errors and reports them as repaired.   Do I continue to run chkdsk /r until it runs without finding any errors that it reports are repaired.    I am unclear if it runs and finds errors and successfully repairs them, if I am to continuously run chkdsk until it runs once WITHOUT ANY ERRORS.

Hope this makes sense.....

If this is an important computer (and probably is if it is a server), I would suggest getting a new hard drive to replace the failing one. Once you start getting errors on that drive things will usually only get worse in the near future.
