Defrag problems...

This IS a hardware/system question, but it happens with some games.

This is the problem:

When playing Mafia it "skips" badly now and then, but I know it's not a graphics issue. I asked one of my friends and he suggested defraging. After I defraged, it ran smoothly, then when I re-opened it a hour later the same thing happened again.

Another thing I noticed that after I defraged, about three hours later it said I needed to defrag AGAIN!! [basically, I have the alarm to go off when the HD goes pass 5% fragmentation, so, first it was at 2% then three hours later it was at 8%]!

WHAT CAN THE PROBLEM BE, IM STRESSING HERE!!!??

Thanx in advance!

Also, Mafia is the only game that acts like that. My GTA 3 runs PERFECTLY!!!!

Only thing I can think of......which will probably do nothing.....but won't hurt is to do a checkdisk. Right click on the drive/properties/tools.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
