Someone in my household hasn't heard of the shutdown command. The PC was switched of from the power button and now my PC is ruined!
Basically everytime i switch it on, it goes to then blue screen where chkdsk takes place, but the following error message is displayed:
chkdsk program not found - SKIPPING AUTOCHECK
it stays here for around 30 seconds and the boots up again and loops like this continously. Now i have been looking through google to find a solution, and there are many, but none which i can really do.
The reason for this is because:
I can't get into command prompt or safe mode, the computer just prints of loads of random lines and once again reboots
I can't use last known configuration or anything in that list really.
I cant seem to boot from a XP setup disc (CDROM) has i have a file missing???
The only thing i can do is use the recovery CD i got with the PC and either use the recovery console -- or reinstall windows XP by formatting my drive
Now that is the LAST resort, and im sure i can get through this. I have been reading and its something about a hidden NTFS in a partition.
I have a 320GB hard drive (two seperate 160GB harddrives, but it only displays as one harddrive), but it is not partitioned.
If anyone could help it would be so great, ive had no computer for 3 days and counting.....
btw im at work :-(
