Hello El Boyero.

What Service Pack do you have installed on your machine? You can find out by right clicking the "My Computer" icon on your desktop and select "Properties".

This seems to be a problem that was solved in SP2.

With Regards,
The Panda

Try running chkdsk /r, not /f.

How are you trying to run chkdsk...from the Recovery Console?

I have XP SP2 installed, so in my case the isuue has not be solved. I don't have a recovery console as the OS came installed in the laptop. Thanks both of you.

This link has a couple of links to Recovery Console downloads: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/blogs/usas...?showentry=1261
You'll need a burning program that's capable of burning images/ISO files in order to make the disk bootable. The above link has links to a free ISO Recorder Power Toy.
