I am not really sure how to go about opening up an Eee PC and I dn't want to void the warranty.
Chkdsk does not delete files, it attempts to correct some file and disk situations that need attention.
Chkdsk Explained, Understanding What Chkdsk Does - http://support.microsoft.com/kb/314835/EN-US/ Scroll down to Understanding What Chkdsk Does for a summary.
Typically, when the system prompts to run chkdsk at boot...it's a sign that XP has detected a situation needing attention.
I suggest removing the drive and attaching it to a working system with XP on it...and running chkdsk /r on the drive from there. This can be done from the cmd prompt window, as explained below.
You can use a USB enclosure (with your drive inside the enclosure) to attach the drive. The enclosure must accomodate SATA drives, if that is the type of hard drive you have installed.
