Hello, I have been Googling this but I'm not able to find helpful answers. I have an Acer laptop with Windows XP Home Edition, SP3. I didn't install or make any changes, one day it just wouldn't boot and was stuck on an endless loop of trying to boot and the Autochk program not found message.

I've tried the options under the F8 key, same results and screens when trying. The computer does not have a CD disk drive so I can't try to recover from a disk.

Unless there's a screen trick I'm guessing I'll have to hook up the hard drive to another computer to access its files and try to repair it that way? I do have another computer with XP if that helps. If I am to try this what should I look for and where is it located? Yes I'm a computer noob but I'm good at following instructions! Thank you.

I'd suggest you download the hd diagnostic utility from the website of your hd manufacturer, burn it to cd, boot to it and run a full diagnostic on your hd.
