When I try to start my computer, a screen appears asking whether or not I would like to start the computer under safe mode or the computer will start manually in 20 seconds. I leave it alone and the Windows XP start up screen appears. Usually this screen lasts only about a minute or so. Now, it lasts about 10 minutes. Then the screen goes to the blue screen where you would normally log in under your user name. Now, however the computer reads:
Checking file system on C:
The type of the file sustem is NTFS.
CHKDSK is verifying files (stage 1 of 3)...
File record segment 7144 is unreadable.
File record segment 7145 is unreadable.
so on and so forth for about 30 mintues until it is 100% complete. Then the computer just sits there, doing nothing.
No where will the computer let me type in anything and I cannot get to the main screen at all. Needless to say, it is quite frustrating. If anyone knows what I can do to fix this problem it would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
