I loaded my computer up today and the disk check thing came up so i let it run, when it gets to the end it does this and stops...

Checking file system on C:
the type of file system is Fat32.

One of your disks needs to be checked for consistency you
may cancel the disk check, but it is strongly recommended
that you continue.
Windows will now check the disk
Volume serial number is 0cw7-9194

Windows is verifying files and folders
\windows\DUMP36de.tmp first allocation unit is not valid. The entry will be trunacated.
\windows\DUMP38d2.tmp is cross-linked on allocation unit 511909

How many GB are there on your C:\ drive?
Is there only 1 harddisk in your PC and does it only have 1 partition?
Do you have a D:\ drive for your CD player?
Do you have other drives (E:\, F:\,... for data, documents, movies, music,...)?

Can you try yo boot your PC in safe mode?

You do this by rebooting the PC and then press F8. When the PC reboots, start pressing F8 regulary, because you need to get the timing correct :whistling:
If it works you should get a screen where you can chose a few startup modes
- safe mode
- safe mode with networking
- Last known good configuration
- normal boot

and a few others... chose safe mode from there

A software mode that enables users who use Microsoft Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows ME, Windows 2000, and Windows XP to enter safely into Windows and correct any problems that may be preventing them from entering normal mode. What makes safe mode different from normal mode is it uses Windows default drivers and settings, this helps users correct issues so they can get back into normal mode. Safe mode was first introduced in Microsoft Windows 95 and is available in all versions of Microsoft Windows except Microsoft Windows 3.x, Windows NT 3.0, and Windows NT 4.0
