I was browsing online when all of a sudden everything locked up. I shut my computer down and when I restarted nothing would come up not even the boot menu. The computer was on but nothing on the monitor. Then it started shutting itself down and restarting but still nothing on monitor. Then finally it did start to boot up and something came on the screen. When I got logged into my desktop the blue screen with an error message came up saying something was wrong and it wouldn't let me go any farther. It said something about CHECKPOINT USB1 AND CHKDSK/F(I know what this) but after I shut down it wouldn't come up again to where I could try and get into chkdsk. PLEASE HELP

EDIT: Moved to more appropriate forum

Insert the Windows XP CD into the CD drive, and then restart the computer. Click to select any options that are required to start the computer from the CD drive if you are prompted. When the "Welcome to Setup" screen appears, press R to start the Recovery Console. If you have a dual-boot or multiple-boot computer, select the installation that you must access from the Recovery Console. When you are prompted, type the Administrator password. If the administrator password is blank, just press ENTER.

Type: chkdsk /r

It's important to have a space before the "/".

To exit the Recovery Console and restart the computer, type exit at the command prompt, and then press ENTER.
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.
