Default Windows XP home chkdsk /f help

My computer has been running extremely slow. Now when I turn it on it shows the XP logo, then goes to a black screen. It sits here for about a minute then goes to a blue screen for scanning disks. It keeps repeating this over and over never advancing to another step. I tried defragmenting and I get a message, please run chkdsk /f. I run chkdsk /f and I get a message that says run chkdsk /f, I get a message saying "Cannot lock current drive. Chkdsk cannot run because the volume is inuse by another process. Would you like to schedulethis volume to be checked the next time the system restarts?" When I say yes and restart, same story, black screen, blue screen etc. and keeps repeating. I tried running chkdsk and I get a message stating "Warning! F parameter is not specified." It goes thru stage 1 no problem, stage 2 it says it's deleting files and then it disappears. Any ideas? I'm not computer savvy, so please don't get too technical.

Select "no" when it asks for a scan at next reboot.

Also try derrmc's solution.

boot your computer with a boot cd for winxp
