Dozens of Corrupt Files and No ChkDsk

    I'm in charge of 180 M280E tablets. I'm seeing a significant number of
    corrupt files especially with Word and OneNote. I try Chkdsk as well as
    Norton SystemWorks. Both ChckDsk and NDD32 do not launch on a reboot. I've
    read the other ChkDsk articles and have tried GWScan, Bart PE, Safe Mode, and
    Diagnostice Mode. Norton Disk Doctor32 tells me there are file system
    errors, but will not run when the system is rebooted. Launching System
    Recovery is a temporary fix. Is there any way to force a chkdsk? I was able
    to get it to launch once on a new M280E, but could not replicate it on
    another tablet nor do it again on that computer.

    My other question is, with ChkDsk gone haywire will XP loose its
    "self-healing" properties? We are one month into a 4-year service contract.
    Is there anyway to stem the flood of corrupt files?

    I have to deal with plenty of issues with the M280Es, but this one ticks me
    off the most. Any help is appreciated.

    Have you contacted Gateway about this? If you have, what's been the

    This doesn't sound like something that's going to be easily fixed. I've
    forwarded your post on to someone I know at Gateway who can look into it

    My first inclination is to say "Norton !" but let's see what Gateway has to

    The only Gateway reps I talk to are the customer service operators. They
    only handle computers on a case by case basis. Only after talking to several
    did one mention GWScan. The "canned" response I get is for them to send out
    a new hard drive.
