Blue Screen Of Death When Doing Disk Defrag
Posted on 2007-10-08
When I recently tried to do a disk defrag using Windows XP Pro, I got the infamous BSOD which I never got before. I did a chkdsk /f and it didn't report any bad sectors. However, when I was copying files to an external hard drive I got the same BSOD. The subdirectory was windows/font which didn't make any sense. When I excluded that directory everything worked fine. I am not sure if there is a bad spot on my C drive or something else. Here is message when I get the BSOD.
A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.
If this is the first time you have seen this stop error screen, restart your computer. If this screen appears again , follow these steps:
Check to make sure any new hardware or software is properly installed. If this is a new installation, ask your hardware or software manufacturer for any windows updates you might need.
If problems continue, disable or remove any newly installed hardware or software. Disable BIOS memory options such as caching or shadowing. If you need to use Safe mode to remove or disable components, restart your computer, press F8 to select Advanced Startup Options, and then select Safe Mode.
*** STOP: 0x000000D1 (0x00000030, 0x00000007, 0x00000000, 0xF8696A0)
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
