I am planning to take legal action against a large well known PC Company in the UK and would like some expert opinion on a specific point.
If I can get expert advice that contributes to a successful claim against the company I will include a fee for this advice as part of this claim.
However, the advice I need must be plausible and will need to be backed up with an appropriate technical rationale.
Here are the brief details of my complaint, please contact me directly for more details.
I rana partiton procedure with Partition Commander and during the reboot got the message ERROR HIDDEN CHECKSUM
Thereafter my machine would not continue to load windows.
I rebooted with the rescue disk (made on the Partition Commander install disc during installation) and got to the c prompt. My directories and files all seemed to be there but I could not proceed any further.

your third party partitioning utility maybe incompatible with your system rom bios. the int21h or int13h level may not properly communicating with your operating system.try the fdisk utility which will change the structures of your file and disk management.

I agree with 2, but also need a little more info. Another possibility on the off chance is your ram reporting the wrong size to the bios.

If you have an EEPROM board, i would see about doing a default restore in BIOS setup. This may restore the previous values into your bios. Hope this was helpful,

Good Luck
