    When I start my PC I get the screen where you select either 'Start Windows Normally', 'Last Known Good Configuration' etc. I have tried both 'Start Windows Normally' and 'Last Known Good Configuration'. This causes the screen with the XP logo and the wee green 'loading' icon to move along below it. I am then brought to the screen that tells me my disk needs checked. If I hit any key the PC just resets itself. If I let the disk check run it scans and resets once complete.

    Anybody know what may be causing this?

    Your system is running CHKDSK /F when you boot, and you should let it run at least once, don't interrupt it.

    Something put this in because of a NTFS problem that needs repair. You should always boot normally.

    You don't say, do you ever get to the desktop?

    Let us know and we may be able to give you a fix.
