What to do when scandisk keeps restarting?

Question

When I try to perform scandisk on my hard drive. It starts, gets to a certain point and keeps starting over, therefore never completing the function. Any ideas as to what I can try?

Sounds like a hard disk problem Maybe some clusters are defective -- which is very likely, if ScanDisk keeps restarting If you have a second hard disk, try to defrag it If this works, your defragger is okay Otherwise, there should be an error message to point you to the source of the problem
