Well I didn't reboot since I didn't change anything and the last 10 or so times I tried to normally boot either A) hung up on chkdsk when I went to cancel or B) let chkdsk run and BSOD


If you want me to try to normally boot let me know.

It is possible that chkdsk is running, so do not shut down even if the activity LED is inactive. It can run for hours without any indication then suddenly boot.

Edit. 11.40pm
Been over 5 hours running, no report back, (you may be unavailable, asleep) If system not responded, other techs may have more suggestion.
On an of chance, try Last Known Good, press enter.

I can upload the logs again if ya want. My system is still stuck in limbo at the time of my post there is intermittent hard drive activity but haven't see any in awhile. I've tried last known configuration before. Currently waiting to see what its best for me to do with computer currently stuck in limbo. I can upload the logs as soon as we figure out what to do. Since I'm on the spare laptop to post. Also before I went to bed I also checked if keyboard was active it was not and still isn't.

How To Run Chkdsk /r from Recovery Console:


How to run checkdisk from recovery console (Windows xp). (Courtesy dsenette)
  • Insert the Windows XP startup disk into the floppy disk drive, or insert the Windows XP CD-ROM into the CD-ROM drive, and then restart the computer.
    Note:Click to select any options that are required to start the computer from the CD-ROM drive if you are prompted to do so.
  • When the "Welcome to Setup" screen appears, press R to start the Recovery Console.
    Note:If you have a dual-boot or multiple-boot computer, select the installation that you want to access from the Recovery Console.
  • When you are prompted to do so, type the Administrator password. If the administrator password is blank, just press ENTER.
  • At the Recovery Console command prompt, type the following then press Enter:

    chkdsk /r

  • Allow this to run UNDISTURBED until completed (45 min or so)
  • Report any errors

The only info it told me was exactly this "CHKDSK found and fixed one or more errors on the volume" Is there a way to figure out what? Also let me know what you would like me to try now.
