A couple of weeks ago i started receiving an error on startup saying that Disk C: needed to be checked for constancy, Type of file is NTSF, Cannot open Volume for Direct Access due to a recent software package installation, please use system restore to a point prior to the software installation. There is not a restore point available to access as far back as i need to go. What do i need to do fix this problem??? Plus is there any way to figure out what program is causing this issue, so i can uninstall it??

right-click on a command prompt icon and open as administrator. In the command prompt window type: chkdsk /r (then press ENTER). You'll be told the disk is in use and asked if you want to run checkdisk on the next boot. Say yes, exit the command prompt window, and reboot.

i have done that several times, but it can't perform check due to an NTSF file error due to a recent software package installation.

Try again or use your Windows disc for startup repair in command prompt.

Hi, No Windows disc? Then you should make this one, It will be needed if the computer ever fails to boot.
You should also make the System recovery Set of DVDs.


How to create a Windows System Repair Disc

Windows comes with a built-in repair environment called the Recovery Environment. Unfortunately, it is possible for the recovery environment to become inaccessible. The same tools can be accessed by using the Windows DVD that came with your computer, but unfortunately not many computer manufacturers actually provide the Windows media anymore. Therefore, it is suggested that you create the bootable Windows System Repair disc, which you can boot off of to access these troubleshooting and recovery tools when you need them. This tutorial will walk you through the process of creating this disc.


Booting off of this disk will give you the same repair option as if you had the Windows Disk. Note: It can not be used for installations, only for repairs.

Good Luck
Roger

Created the system recovery disk, but computer will not read it during reboot, i tried it twice. I also tired to run disk check in safe mode but computer will freeze up while loading drivers in safe mode. It won't complete start up in safe mode, it starts loading all the drivers and then just freezes on me.

If I'm remembering properly on HP computers when the HP logo appears you need to press the Esc key to get to the boot device menu. Then choose the DVD and see if that works.

Just curious HP 2000 or dv2000
