Something keeps me from running Dban

Something keeps me running Dban correctly. DBAN starts and then ends really fast, saying "no fatal errors.

I get error messages saying * error/dev/sda (crash of the process).

I did a little research but I don't understand too well. Looks like I have to turn something off in the Bios so that it runs properly. Can someone walk me through what I need to do?

I use the disc I burned with Dban.

I use a HP Pavilion P6000, model No. p6505uk series

Windows 7 Edition Home Premium 64-bit

I found this on the Dban help forum, but I do not understand well-

http://sourceforge.NET/p/DBAN/discussion/208932/thread/332bf1d2/

Any help would be great!

I'm going to mark as resolved because I don't think I'll bother with Dban, after all.  I'll probably try HDDErase.

Thanks a lot for the advice and the Axshun link, you have been very helpful.

  • How can I stop programs@from running in the background?

    programs - I never userun in the background as institutional calendar. I would like to launch a clean background and a sleek office. Is ok to ermanently remove apps / programs I not have access? or better yet I can remove the icon without deleting the program I talk about these programs preinstalled. latter case your room for answerng this - what is the diffrence between apps widgets n programs on the droid.

    I'm sorry it explained not completely. I will try. Default apps cannot be uninstalled or removed. You can go into management applications in the settings and force closes, but it can start up if the operating system decides that she needs. There is an application that will allow you to hide the icons, but I don't remember the name. I don't know of a setting in the calendar application to prevent it from running. You might want to make sure that it is not set to automatically synchronize. This could be the reason why he is running. So the only way I know to keep them from running in the background is using a task killer, so the answer is always the same. I hope that I have cleared it up a little bit.

  • How can I stop CHKDSK from running on startup?

    CHKDSK turned on somehow and now every time I start my Pc it runs this program.  It is on my hard drive and takes a long time to startup!  How can I stop the program from running at startup?

    The next time your system starts and installs, you should check the bit of impurity of the volume as follows:

    Click Start, run and enter in the box:

    cmd

    Click OK to open the command prompt window.

    To query the bit of impurity on drive C, type:

    fsutil dirty query C:

    The sample output:
    Volume c is dirty
    Volume C: is dirty

    Type "exit" to close the command prompt window.

    Is your disc dirty or it is not dirty?    If you have more than one volume, check all out them.

    A volume is marked usually dirty of a power outage or something like using the power button to restart the system.  One of this kind of thing has happened before this problem?

    The command chkntfs /d to clear a chkdsk waiting you plan yourself, but it does not clear the dirty bit.

    The command chkntfs /X C: never say XP check the reader for inconsistencies again and perhaps not a good idea since the reader may really need that chkdsk to run on it.  If the dirty bit is just NOT clear, no matter what you do, your HARD disk may be failing / failed.

    The only way to clear the dirty bit is a success of chkdsk /r and if she will not clear at the start of your system, I would run it from the XP Recovery Console so you can watch it run and if you like, run it again until it runs its own.  You cannot check the good bit of impurity of the XP Recovery Console, but you can see what chkdsk/r.

    Since we don't know anything about your system, here are some instructions for making a CD of bootable XP Recovery Console and from there, you can run chkdsk/r until it comes clean.

    Boot into the Recovery Console Windows using an XP bootable installation CD.

    If you have no XP bootable media (or aren't sure you have) create a bootable XP Recovery CD of Console and do not forget.

    This is not the same as recovery disks that might have come with the acquisition of the system store.

    You can make a bootable Recovery Console CD by downloading an ISO file and burn it to a CD.

    The ISO bootable image file you need to download is called:

    xp_rec_con. ISO

    Download the ISO from here:

    http://www.mediafire.com/?ueyyzfymmig

    Use a new CD and this simple and free program to burn your ISO file and create your bootable CD:

    http://www.ImgBurn.com/

    When you install ImgBurn, DO NOT install the Ask toolbar.

    Here are some instructions for ImgBurn:

    It would be a good idea to test your bootable CD on a computer running.

    You may need to adjust the computer BIOS settings to use the CD-ROM drive as the first device to boot instead of the hard drive.  These adjustments are made before Windows tries to load.  If you miss it, you will need to restart the system again.

    When you start on the CD, follow the instructions:

    Press any key to boot from CD...

    Installing Windows... going to pronounce.

    Press 'R' to enter the Recovery Console.

    Select the installation that you want to access (usually 1: C:\WINDOWS)

    You may be asked to enter the password (usually empty).

    You should be in the folder C:\WINDOWS.  It's the same as the

    C:\Windows folder that you see in Solution Explorer.

    The Recovery Console allows base as file commands: copy, rename, replace, delete, chkdsk, fixboot, fixmbr, cd, etc.

    For a list of the commands in the Recovery Console, type help at the prompt of commands or read on here XP Recovery Console:

    http://www.Microsoft.com/resources/documentation/Windows/XP/all/proddocs/en-us/recovery_console_cmds.mspx?mfr=true

    A good idea before you start things must first verify the integrity of your file system by using the chkdsk command.

    In the command prompt window, run the chkdsk command on the drive where Windows is installed to try to fix any problems on the afflicted player.

    Running chkdsk is fine, even if he finds no problem.  It won't hurt anything to run it.

    Assuming your boot drive is C, run the following command:

    CHKDSK C: /r

    Let chkdsk finish to correct the problems, he could find.

    It may take a long time for chkdsk complete or they seem to be "stuck".  Be patient.  If the HARD drive led blinks always, chkdsk is something.  Keep an eye on the amount of the percentage to be sure that it is still making progress.  It may even seem to go back sometime.

    You must run chkdsk/r again until it finds no error to correct.

    Remove the CD, and then type "exit" to exit the RC and restart the computer.

    You have not to set the BIOS to boot the disk HARD since the CD won't be.

  • Remove some programs from running at startup

    How can I remove some programs from running at startup? for example, Super Anti Spyware, automatically runs on startup and is listed in the lower right corner of my desk drawer, but it really slows my time to go on the internet. I only have access if necessary.

    You can click on start > run > msconfig

    then under the Startup tab, you will find a list of programs that launch at startup of windows.   they are activated by a check mark.

    In addition, you can check the services through the services tab.

    Select / check "hide microsoft services" and then what remains on the revised list are non-microsoft programs you have added to the system and are also expected to start automatically.

    don't forget to click 'apply' for the changes you make and then restart to see the effects.

    The only question the idea of Malkeleah, that is when you put a password on BIOS, all you need to do is pop the battery from the motherboard and the password is gone. Faronics has in some programs such as anti-executable and a few other programs that may block the name or ID of a process and prevent it from running (some antiviruses have that option, such as Avast, but usually is a pain in the ass to configure)
