Chkdsk /f is a hard-drive check that runs before windows starts. If you aborted it typically it reschedules to run on the next startup.

Go to Command Prompt (Start>Programs>Accessories>Command Prompt) and type in: chkdsk /f
Afterward press ENTER. It should tell you if the check was already scheduled, or if you would like to schedule it for next system startup.

If the check was already scheduled, restart the computer and don't touch the keyboard until your see your desktop.

If it asks you if you want to schedule the check to run on the next system startup, type Y and press ENTER. Now restart your computer and let the disk check run. After it has completed your system will restart and hopefully the check won't be scheduled any more.

Now try to defragment your computer. If the error still remains, try a different defragmenting utility such as O&O Defrag or Auslogics Defrag.

Let me know how it turns out, or if you need some more help.

Do you have the original installation disk that came with the computer? You can try to boot from that CD and do a repair installation. The Cyclic Redundance Check (CRC) error refers to the media the computer is trying to access (either the CD or the hard drive). Try booting into Safe Mode (reboot and press F8 repeatedly until you get a boot menu). From Safe Mode run a checkdisk (chkdsk from command line) on the hard drive to find and repair any found disk issues.

Hi,

Chkdsk is a utility designed to check the integrity of the data on a computer's hard disk drive as well as find and fix errors which could corrupt such data.

Running chkdsk on your Windows XP or 2000 system can repair minor Windows problems

There are several different methods that can be used to run chkdsk
start with this one..... chkdsk c: /p
1. Click the Start button then... Run
2. In the Run window's Open box... type in ... cmd
3. Click OK and an MS-DOS-style black screen will appear in a new window
4. Run chkdsk by typing one of the the following commands where the cursor is blinking...
chkdsk c: /p and then press ...ENTER...

This is a short test that will tell you whether or not a longer test is needed. If after the test is done and a message ...One or more errors detected on the volume... appears then proceed to one of the next options...read them both first

Please let us know if that was helpful enough.
Good Luck & Thanks,
Shiv.
