problems with a Dell Inspiron 910 mini?
Posted on 2009-04-28
a friend of mine has a dell mini laptop and his step-son had admins rights and a password set so i logged in as admins and set-up a new admins profile, changed his step-sons to limited (it's win XP w/ SVC pack 3 btw) anyway i ran defrag and it wouldn't complete the defrag and i set-up a scan disk which also seemed to freeze, now when he logs in under his step-sons profile it's getting a blue-screen error:
error code 0F00:0244 MSODISK_0 block 838520 can't read, replace disk or remove write protection also got errors in 3 more blocks when i ran some diagnostics i got errors on these:
i ran a chkdsk and there was no bad sectorsthe only thing can find in device manager is error loading driver for "compal embedded system control" i am not sure what that is or if it's causing the problems , i feel bad because i was just trying to help him out but now i feel like i made things worse, is it possible defrag or scandisk could actually mess something up? i can add more details
