I'm not a Windows person, so please bear with me…
My grandparents' computer shut off during the night. Might have been a power flicker, don't know for sure (the other end of the city was having power issues, so we may have flickered for a moment). We leave it on during the night and have done so for years now, because it has issues booting (basically, you have to turn it on, turn it off, then turn it on again and hope for the best—it's had these problems for many, many years, and they were only made worse with my grandmother's accidental "agreement" to upgrade to Win10—love ya, Microsoft ;).
When my grandmother attempted to power it on this morning, it booted to a screen that said "Preparing Automatic Repair" or some such, and then defaulted to a screen that says "Automatic Repair Failed. The log file is at X:\yyy\zzz…". It now does this every time it manages to boot past the Windows logo (it's typical of this computer to require multiple restarts, as previously explained). I opened that log file with command prompt and the only automatic test without an error code of
0x0 was the following:
Name: Disk metadata test Result: Completed successfully. Error code = 0x32 Time taken: 15 ms
I'd love to do research on what that code means, but I haven't used a Windows computer seriously or on a daily basis since I was 11, so suffice it to say, I haven't much of a clue where to look for these sorts of things. Could someone please enlighten me as to what error code
0x32 means for the disk metadata test? Thank you tremendously.
