Just have a quick question; what was that command you would type in RUN so that it would replace all the system files and would ask for your WIndows XP CD? Like it does a quick repair and makes sure all the important files are intact and in place :thumbsup: Thanks :flowers:

What you are looking for is the system file checker command. Take a look at these two links: Guide to Windows XP Recovery Features and How to use the scannow sfc tool in Windows XP.

Thank you AnImALL =D 'sfc/ scannow' thats it

Just got another issue; might ask here cause it would be a waste opening a new topic.

Everytime I boot my computer "CHKDSK" runs with the blue screen and it checks my "D" Drive (this is my slave drive) and does it every boot up, and now its getting annoying, I looked around system settings but found nothing relative to this; no errors or anything and I properly shutdown my computer all the time :S

It's possible that the drive is damaged or corrupt. Go to the drive's mfg's support site and download their diagnostic utility and run it and see if anything shows up

There are several ways to determine what you have , the easiest is to take off the side and look. I suggest downloading SIW. A handy tool, useful in many ways. You should have it installed anyways. It will tell you what brand.
Western Digital
Samsung
Maxtor/Seagate
are the most common

As for the chkdsk command starting there is a registry fix for it. It was originally written for Windows 2000, but according to a trusted source I have used before, they tell me it will work for XP just as well. I have confirmed that fact. Remember!! This is a Registry Fix. BACK UP YOUR REGISTRY If You try it.

Sorry to bring this up again, but its better than starting a new topic

i added the command "sfc /SCANBOOT" hoping to get a scan up on startup worked fine, but now I get it every single time i restart my computer! is there anyway i can negate "/SCANBOOT"
