I have this HP Pavilion dv2000, Vista Home Premium 32, when I power it on it automatically runs chkdsk on drive c. It says it is recommended to run but once the timer runs down to cancel it, it auto cancels by itself. Then it will try and boot up but gets to a screen where it is configuring updates 3 of 3. the % never moves on it and after about 2 min. it will restart the laptop and do it all over again. Any help would be very much appreciated.

I also tried restarting it from last known good configuration and it just restarted doing the same thing.

Let chkdsk complete

On volumes marked as "dirty," Windows automatically runs chkdsk when the computer is restarted.

1. click on your start menu and open the run dialog.
2. type "cmd" and return (note: dont enter quotes)
3. Next type "fsutil dirty query c:"
4. If the return message indicates that the volume is dirty go to step 5
5. Next type "chkdsk c: /f /x"
6. After that finshes repeat step 3.
7. If it is no longer dirty then reboot and you should notice no more ckdisk.

Thanks for the reply but I fixed the problem already. Also letting chkdsk finish was my problem.....it would not even start. I ended up talking to a Microsoft tech or there new India customer service...whatever, he took control of the computer and found that the SP2 was corrupting the registry with multiple downloads of SP2 and other updates due to compatibility issues of the Windows Update and SP2 and that particular laptop. So I basically had to reinstall Windows with integrated SP2. Worked and is updating like it should.
