  1. Note: I was called back a few weeks later for the same reason. Looks like the hard drive is about to fail (although SMART didn’t report any problem!)

  2. I have the same error message with an added problem. The startup continues to time out even if I try and start in SAFE Mode. I can’t seem to get to a prompt screen. I have tried all options on F8 and only get to the error message screen using F10 and then selecting no to running the recovery; or hitting the ESC key somewhere along the way. I’m not sure how to get to a point where I can do a chdsk or anything else. Any suggestions?

  3. Thanks for the reply. Is there a procedure to create the cd’s described, I’m not familiar with how to do this. Also, if I create from a computer running XP Professional will it work for XP Home which is on the computer having issues?

  4. I can’t explain the procedure here… read the respective websites, and read the documentation.

    If you still can’t understand how to do it, then you need to call a computer professional.

    to run a chkdsk, it doesn’t matter if you make the CD from XP home or XP pro.

  5. you should open your pc in a safe mode..click f5 and enter repeatedly..then when the safe mode launched,click start->run->chkdsk
