    Hi guys

    After i have assigned my Windows XP to have c drive auto fix with the chkdsk function, and reboot, it as usual chkdsk my c drive and said to be rebooted again. Then the windows XP can't boot up after showing the first screen with a moving horizontal bar, it all turns black, no hard dsik moving, until I reset the pc. Then, I can only choose to use the last known hardware config and ok again, but have to reinstalled some stuff such as my mouse driver. BUT, but fron then on, every time I manual a chkdsk, it all happens again. Can anyone help?. Ths a lot

    :confused:

    When you get to the recovery console-that it the MS-DOS looking thing...

    Type in "chkdsk /r" (without quotes) and press Enter. The process will run and when it's complete, type "EXIT" (without quotes) and it will reboot the PC and hopefully things will be back to normal.


    Good Luck!

    Hi there!

    Sounds like there may either be some type windows corruption or a hardware issue.

    find out what brand of Hard Drive is in the system and go to that drive maker's website and download their Diagnostics program and check the hard drive for problems.


    Good Luck!

    If you open Device Manager
    (Control Panel - System - Hardware Tab)
    look in the section marked "Disk Drives" and it will identify what brand of hard drive you have. it will say Maxtor, WD(western Digital), Western Digital, Quantum, IBM, or something else.

    Once you determine who makes the hard drive that is in your PC, go to that drive maker's website. If it's Western Digital it's www.westerndigital.com

    you should see a link on their website for diagnostic program. Western Digital's is called "Data Lifeguard", Maxtor's is called "PowerMax".

    Download the file and follow the instructions that are provided to test your hard drive.

    Dear sexy T

    Thanks again for reply . My Disk drivers is WDC WD200BB-75AUA1 and ny guessing is like u said (western Digital ) and I did download the Data Lifeguard V10.0 and I did follow the instruction and It was to choices one install drive and othe one to test I guess the I did the test and result was no errors . Did I do everything right?




    Other main question is ( No way to scan disk with fix errors without restart the computer , like win ME and ... I think many people they are not happy to restart computer.)


    Thanks again for your time

    Try having it make the Bootable Floppy Disk and boot the pc with that and test the drive again.

    in most cases, it's actually better to test the drive by booting to a floppy disk & running it that way.

    Note: run the Quick Test and the Extended tests BOTH!
    DO NOT USE THE WRITE ZEROS OPTION!
