Scandisk crash

  1. hi,
    whenever i run scandisk it ends up crashing my computer and a blue screen comes up with an error message.
    the computer then reboots and once back on again and logged in i recieve a message saying windows has recovered from a serious error..

    I am using windows xp sp2


    The error signature reads:

    BCCode: 9c BCP1 : 00000002 BCP2: 8054DA70 BCP3: F6002000
    BCP4: 0000017A OSVer: 5_1_2600 SP: 2_0 Product: 768_1


    I also find that when i try to run scandisk it by passes it really quickly on rebooting and loads up like it would normally.
    I'm guessing a scan file is corrupted or something.
    I re-installed xp and the problem persists (though that was just a re-install not a format then re-install).

    Does anyone know whats goin on here??
    Thanks
    from Bobby

    A re-format should fix it provided its not physical damage on the hard drives read surfaces.

    I use norton systemworks registry repair 2003 to repair my hard disks. You don't have to reboot to do it, plus you can set it for automation.

    first run chkdsk with /F option second update your all drivers if these not help then i might be a memory issue (or HD or mobo)

    thanks for the help guys.....
    just a quick not before i attempt any of the solutions...
    im noticing on more than ordinary occasions applications are freezing such as media player...
    then the message of END NOW or CANCEL appears...
    could this be a sign of worse to come?

    bear in mind that i did just re-install xp so maybe thats why
