My computer hanged when starting up. So I had ro reboot by pressing the power button. Now when it starts if gives the following error message.The Type of system is NFTSCannot open volume for direct access.Windows has finished checking the disk.I have Windows XP home addition with service pack 2, I have read the article about this both on this site and at Microsoft knowledge base.So my computer is running chkdsk at start up. So how do you turn it off.Also I have tried to restore to earlier restore point but it won't let me restore the system.Any ideas?
I would suggest booting from the XP CD ROM and loading the recovery console, and from there run chkdsk /f from the command prompt and allow the programme to run. This should fix any errors on the drive.
Start then All Programs then Accessories then Command Prompt. It will look like click hereCopy and paste this into the command promp boxCHKNTFS /X C:Hit EnterNow turn off the PC and then restart it with the power button, (do not do a restart)it should not do a Chkdsk and take you directly in to Windows. Start then All Programs then Accessories then Command Prompt as beforeCopy and paste this into the command promp boxCHKDSK /f /r C:Hit EnterWhen its run you should be ok.
got an older version of Zone Alarm by any chance?
Good news. The error message has stopped coming up on start up.But when I tried to run the chksdk /f command it says the drive is already in use by another program. And about running chkdsk on next start up, to which I said no.I do have Zone Alarm security suite but it the very latest version and has been running fine since May last year.Not been able to get the recovery console to run yet. Booted from my windows CD but it did not give me the option of the recovery console.
