If you have a the windows install disk boot from it and when prompted press "R" to launch the Recovery Console. When open execute the command "chkdsk". It sounds like the HDD may be going bad.

If it will boot into safe mode, run chkdsk /r

If it won't boot into safe mode, use XP installation disk to get in to the Recovery Console and run chkdsk /r from there.

Running "chkdsk" without switches will only report on the drive; it won't fix anything.

Thanks
Thanks for your swift response but i dont have any of the relevant disk due to office movement here and therand that resulted in misplacing all my disc for the system and i can't seem to get any from any retail market here due to the type as what is very common now is an hp system.

What do i do now and how to go about it.

Regards

Any OEM disk of the same editition will let you boot into Recovery Console; Home for Home, Pro for Pro, etc. as long as it is an OS installation CD and not a "recovery" CD.
