I'm sorry to hear about your issue. We will try to help you resolve this as soon as possible. First by autochk do you mean it is saying one of your disk needs to be checked for consistency?
- Please understand we are all volunteers and we are not here all the time.
- Sometimes it may be a extended amount of time to get back to you. If it has been
more then 3 days please shoot me a PM and I will try to get back to you quickly
- Please do the following and supply the requested information as needed. If you
don't understand my instructions please ask and I will try to explain them
clearer for you.
- Do not attempt any steps unless instructed or ask before to
make sure they will not cause any further issues.
- If you are receiving assistance in any other forum site please let us know as there may be conflicting advice given.
If the answer to my above question is yes please do the following.
Start and then to Run
Type in Chkdsk /r Note the space between k and /
Click Enter ...It will probably ask if you want to do this on the next reboot...click Y
If the window doesn't shutdown on its own then reboot the system manually. On reboot the system will start the chkdsk operation
This one will take longer then chkdsk /f
Note... there are 5 stages...
It may appear to hang at a certain percent for a hour or more or even back up and go over the same area...this is normal...
DO NOT SHUT YOUR COMPUTER DOWN WHILE CHKDSK IS RUNNING OR YOU CAN HAVE SEVERE PROBLEMS
This can take several hours to complete.
When completed it will boot the system back into windows.
Reboot after your done running chkdsk /r...
then Go to Start...Run and type: eventvwr.msc press Enter
When Event Viewer opens, click on Applications... then scroll down to Winlogon and double-click on it. This is the log created after running Checkdisk...copy and paste the log back here
We will advise after studying the log.

If not please try the below and if that doesn't work we may have to rebuild the bootcfg file.

Insert the Microsoft Windows XP CD into the computer. Note: If you have a system recovery CD or restore CD (not a Microsoft CD) these steps will likely not work for your computer.
Reboot the computer with the CD and press any key when prompted to press any key to boot from the CD.
Once in the Microsoft Setup menu press R to open the recovery console.
Select the operating system you wish to use; if you only have Windows XP on the computer you will only have one prompt.
Once prompted for the password enter the Admin password and press enter.
Once at the command prompt type bootcfg /rebuild to start the rebuild process.
The rebuild process will step you through a number of steps depending upon how many operating systems you have on the computer and how the computer is setup. Below is a listing of the common steps you are likely going to encounter.
* Prompt for the identified versions of Windows installed. When you receive this prompt press Y if the bootcfg command properly identified each of the Windows operating systems installed on the computer. It is important to realize this command will only detect Windows XP, Windows 2000, and Windows NT installations.
* Prompt to enter the load identifier. This is the name of the operating system for the boot.ini. For example, Microsoft Windows XP Home users would enter Microsoft Windows XP Home edition.
* Prompt to Enter OS load options. When this prompt is received type /fastdetect to automatically detect the available options.
Once you have completed all the available options in the rebuild and are back at the prompt type exit to reboot the computer.

Use Puppy Linux Live CD to Recover Your Data:
CD Burner (CDRW) Drive,
Extra Storage Device (USB Flash Drive, External Hard Drive)
1. Save these files to your Desktop/Burn Your Live CD:
- Download Latest Puppy Linux ISO (i.e.: lupu-528.iso)
Download BurnCDCC ISO Burning Software
There are instructions on how to boot from flash drive with puppy here; http://www.pendrivel...e-from-windows/
- Open BurnCDCC with Windows Explorer
- Extract All files to a location you can remember
- Double Click BurnCDCC
- Click Browse and navigate to the Puppy Linux ISO file you just downloaded
- Open/Double Click that file
IMPORTANT: Adjust the speed bar to CD: 4x DVD: 1x
- Click Start
- Your CD Burner Tray will open automatically
- Insert a blank CD and close the tray
- Click OK
2. Set your boot priority in the BIOS to CD-ROM first, Hard Drive Second
- Start the computer/press the power button
- Immediately start tapping the appropriate key to enter the BIOS, aka "Setup"
(Usually shown during the "Dell" screen, or "Gateway" Screen)
- Once in the BIOS, under Advanced BIOS Options change boot priority to:
CD-ROM 1st, Hard Drive 2nd
- Open your ROM drive and insert the disk
- Press F10 to save and exit
- Agree with "Y" to continue
- Your computer will restart and boot from the Puppy Linux Live CD
3. Recover Your Data
- Once Puppy Linux has loaded, it is actually running in your computer's Memory (RAM). You will see a fully functioning Graphical User Interface similar to what you normally call "your computer". Internet access may or may not be available depending on your machine, so it is recommended you print these instructions before beginning. Also, double clicking is not needed in Puppy. To expand, or open folders/icons, just click once. Puppy is very light on resources, so you will quickly notice it is much speedier than you are used to. This is normal. Ready? Let's get started.
3a. Mount Drives
- Click the Mount Icon located at the top left of your desktop.
- A Window will open. By default, the "drive" tab will be forward/highlighted. Click on Mount for your hard drive.
- Assuming you only have one hard drive and/or partition, there may be only one selection to mount.
- USB Flash Drives usually automatically mount upon boot, but click the "usbdrv" tab and make sure it is mounted.
- If using an external hard drive for the data recovery, do this under the "drive" tab. Mount it now.
- At the bottom left of your desktop a list of all hard drives/partitions, USB Drives, and Optical Drives are listed with a familiar looking hard drive icon.
- Open your old hard drive i.e. sda1
- Next, open your USB Flash Drive or External Drive. i.e. sdc or sdb1
- If you open the wrong drive, simply X out at the top right corner of the window that opens. (Just like in Windows)
- From your old hard drive, drag and drop whatever files/folders you wish to transfer to your USB Drive's Window.
Remember to only click once! No double clicking! Once you drag and drop your first folder, you will notice a small menu will appear giving you the option to move or copy. Choose COPY each time you drag and drop.
YOU ARE DONE!!! Simply click Menu >> Mouse Over Shutdown >> Reboot/Turn Off Computer. Be sure to plug your USB Drive into another working windows machine to verify all data is there and transferred without corruption. Congratulations!
If you're doing this to recover from a virus or malware infection, (or even if you're not), DO NOT copy executable files (.exe, .scr. etc...) if any of these files are infected you could be copying the corruption over to any new device/computer. just copy documents, pictures, music, or videos.

and 1 thing i haven't understand the 3a. and 3b. point of yours will you elaborate it and what do you mean by this line"Click on Mount for your hard drive".
and as i am booting thru pendrive i haven't understand the point -"USB Flash Drives usually automatically mount upon boot, but click the "usbdrv" tab and make sure it is mounted" where will i found the usbdrv tab option.See,I have thinking of transferring the data in my other pendrive will the linux detect the other pen drive.
1 thing more in actual windows of mine the data was on desktop how will i get that?

By mounting you would have to mount the hard drive to access the data on it. Then you would need to be able to copy the data to the cdrom or another USB drive. It is important if you are going to copy the data to another USB drive that you have the drive connected also during the bootup of Puppy Linux or it will not recognize it.
Once you have the main drive mounted the desktop will be under the Documents and Settings>User>Your name>Desktop

The next step is are you going to format the system and start over?

With Win7 you can try a startup repair or even running the SFC from the Win7 disk.

It has been 17 days since your last response and I was wondering if the issue has been resolved?
If so can you explain how it was resolved so others may be able to fix it if they have the same issue.
If not please let us know and we can continue with helping you to resolve the issue.
