Tabletop PC with Windows XP Prof. Sp2
My hard disk has 4 partitions. While I am able to defragment other drives, I am not able to defragment drive C. When I try with C defragmentation stops,says comlete. Immediately after words if I again analyze C report says defragment. Then the same cycle is repeated all over again. I tried Defrag through command prompt, but there I am denied permission though I am also the administrator of this single user PC.
Whenever I boot the PC afresh (not restart) screen comes up indicating CMOS settings are in error; press F1 to load default values and proceed or F2 for BIOS (mine is AMI BIOS) set-up utility. I press F1 the OS is loaded and PC works. If I press F2 BIOS set-up utility comes up, all settings appear normal; then after “save and exit” the OS is loaded and PC works. Now BIOS shows correct date and time, but when I check through Control Panel Date and Time, both are in error: date is about 7 years back in April, 2005 (it is June 2012) and time is also way behind. I correct them but next time again the same thing happens.
I suspect this F1 / F2 problem started after I had loaded a clock screen saver (ClockScreenSaverSetup), now uninstalled. I am not sure if the defragmentation problem is also connected. Because I tried defragmentation only yesterday.
