So I restart the computer, the XP load screen comes up briefly, and then a blue screen pops up with this error message:

----------------------------------------------------
xmnt2002 program not found - skipping AUTO CHECK

autochk program not found - skipping AUTO CHECK
----------------------------------------------------

at which point the computer restarts and the same thing happens all over again. I only have access to the BIOS right now.

I've tried to repair XP by booting up with the original disk, but that didn't work. I have another partition running XP that I do have access to, if that can help me somehow. But I have no access to the first (my main) partition..

I've Googled this error and read a number of forum links, but most of them just suggest using windows repair.. or it trails off to some other issue.


Now... I have used Partition Magic on this computer, and I did read a comment somehwere that said uninstalling Partition Magic could help get rid of that screen. But how do I uninstall a program on an operating system that I don't have access too?? And even if I get access to the folder in DOS, I can't just *delete* the program folder.. it needs to be properly uninstalled.

What do I do?
