You need to finish that disk check on all drives on your system to check for corruption. Its the safest thing to do.

After that is done, defragment your drive for extra safety.

From the desktop, select My Computer, right click each installed hard drive on your computer, select Properties, Tools and run both error checking and defragmentation one after another.

If you have corrupted removable drives like USB dongles or floppies, they can be checked later separately.

Way to Speed Up Windows Xp by defragmenting disk


Ensure that Windows XP is utilizing the NTFS file system. If you're not sure, here's how to check: First, double-click the My Computer icon, right-click on the C: Drive, then select Properties. Next, examine the File System type; if it says FAT32, then back-up any important data. Next, click Start, click Run, type CMD, and then click OK. At the prompt, type CONVERT C: /FS:NTFS and press the Enter key. This process may take a while; it's important that the computer be uninterrupted and virus-free. The file system used by the boot-able drive will be either FAT32 or NTFS. I highly recommend NTFS for its superior security, reliability, and efficiency with larger disk drives.

Error code 0x00000024 (0x00190203, 0x871a6948, 0xc0000102, 0x00000000000)


This stop error means that your ntfs file system is corrupt (damage in the file system, bad hard drive data, corrupt SCSI or IDE drivers or a corrupt ntfs.sys file).
You should try to access your ntfs partitions by making a ntfs boot disk with NTFS4DOS . You can download it from
http://www.geekswhoknow.com/files/ntfsinst.exe
After you load the bootable floppy disk onto your damaged system, select either option one (1) or option three (3). If you selected option one (1), type chkdsk /r at the command prompt, and your problem should go away after the disk has been repaired.
Unfortunately there is a chance that your partition is corrupt beyond repair and all of your data is lost. In that case, you need to reinstall Windows and select the full format during the install

Hp pavilion 533w on startup goes to boot disk failure-insert system disk. I insert the floppy..it goes to A:/ & I type win as command and it says bad command or file name


Did it work well before? One thing I would check is the memory cards. Sometimes they get loose or the connection isn't good and the computer won't start.
The model I think you have is tough to open, there are directions on the internet if you need.
Another alternative, depending on your operating system, would be to use another computer to create a "start up disk" to use on yours.
There are also directions if you google it.
Could be so many things, just thought I would give you a couple quick things.
If this doesn't work, maybe I can be of more help.

Click on the Tools tab and click the Error Checking button then select all options and follow on-screen instructions.
