Hi A few questions............(1) I have windows XP sometimes when I switch on the screen just stays black. I have to switch off on the tower restart and it works fine...any ideas.

(2) If I go to my computer right click on C drive bring up propeties, tools then go to analyze if defagging is requires it reads run chkdsk/f.?? (3)I have a function on the machine that reads software repair wizard?? What would happen if I ran this?

Hope you can help.

1 - all sorts of possibilities. More information on your OS and software would help.

2 - Chkdsk - click here

Hi Brundle many thanks for the link. I can understand most of it but How do I ....Set your system to safe mode with the "/SAFEBOOT" command from the MSCONFIG program. Click "Start" and "Run." Type "MSCONFIG" and enable the "/SAFEBOOT" option from the BOOT.INI tab if your anti-virus or anti-spyware software is conflicting with the Chkdsk process.
I do not know how to start in safemode??

Brundle yes that answer to three is correct what happens when you run this?

To question 1, what is OS?

OS = Operating System
