So now after having my laptop around 3 years it started to tell me when I start that a check for hard drive consistency is necessary. It says that C: might be broken...or something like that...
In the beginning I did the check...took hours until it started...so now I always skip it when it asks. I found in some forum to do defragmentation of my C:
But as soon as I want to run it I get errors and it tells me to run chkdsk.... :thumbsup:
I have no idea at all about hardware and how to solve this problem!
Is it something serious? Anybody any support for me?

could be a hard drive going bad or bad sectors, I would run the hard drive check for consistency now, and see what it does.

In general...if a user gets that message at startup...the system is saying "Run chkdsk /r right now."

There are several ways of doing so.

From within XP...Start/Run...type chkdsk /r (with space between k and /) and hit Enter. Black screen with white writing comes up, stating that chkdsk cannot be run now (it can't run on the boot partition if Windows is open) and asking if you want to run the command at next boot. Type Y, hit Enter and reboot the system to let it run.

System will reboot when it is completed.
