Question CHKNTFS problem

Hi, I have problem starting windows xp pro, I get to the point were windows asks "start windows normaly" after that it takes 2 seconds then the computer restarts again.

I have tyed this before but it dosent work this time.

using the XP CD, boot it up. run installation, after that, press F8 to agree and then press R to repair, and it goes to dos, were I write chkdsk/r and it repair every thing.

After pressing R this time, I get the following text on the screen.

A problemhas been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.
The problem seems to be caused by the following file:ntfs.sys

PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA


I've tried with a bootdisk to run chkdsk and chkdsk at the MS-DOS prompt but I always get the same answer, this program can not be run in Dos mode.

Im pretty sure I can get the computer to work again if I get the chkdsk or chkntfs to work in MS-DOS.
Is it so that windows should start the checkdisk next time it starts, after I have writen chkntfs /d in the MS-DOS?

So I need any help I can get and I would be grateful for a chknfts that works in dos.

Mathias

to run chkdsk, boot to win xp cd. On the first screen, press R to repair. then, Press F for fast repair. next, Press c for the recovery console. it should prompt you for which installation to repair, the choices will appear on the screen. you'll get a command prompt. run chkdsk

test your memory with memtest86, try swapping out hardware with known good hardware, test the cd in another comp.

after that backup what you can and reformat/reinstall
