Windows XP - Disk error checking

September 2017




In Safe Mode


Restart the computer in Safe Mode (press repetitive F5 or F8 during startup before loading Windows).
  • Open My Computer (icon on the desktop),
  • Select the drive of your choice > Right -Click
  • Properties >Tools > Check Now


Verification at startup


Open an MS-DOS window:
  • Start> Run > cmd
  • Type: chkdsk c:/F
  • If the computer asks if you want to check on the next restart, confirm with O Input, and then restart your computer.




This solution is recommended because it allows Windows to perform an audit of the disc before the programs started.
