Win XP Pro x64 BSOD and unable to run sfc /scannow (CD is different from installed disk)
Posted on 2010-08-12
I have a PC which encounters BSOD about once a week - Win XP Pro x64 SP3, user does not switch off PC. There are several more PCs of the same config and whose users also do not switch off the PC but they do not encounter BSOD.
I have already done the basic troubleshooting:
- cleared temp , prefetch folders, recycle bin,
- Done a full check disk , full HDD defrag, full airus scan,
- downloaded all Win XP patches,
- updated nvidia display drivers to the latest,
But when I try to run "sfc /scannow" for Windows system files check, it says the CD is not the correct CD. I inserted the OEM Win XP install disk from Dell. The OS was factory installed.
How do I bypass this check and perform the sfc /scannow?
