    click yes when it asks you to run chkdsk on the next reboot. Then reboot your system. That should take care of your issue. If not, then you can try this, I know it works in windows XP, but as for windows 2000 it would be worth a shot,

    start run type sfc /scannow

    wait it out, make sure you have your windows 2000 cd available.

    System File Checker

    A command-line utility called System File Checker (SFC.EXE) allows an Administrator to scan all protected files to verify their versions. System File Checker can also set the registry value SFCScan discussed in Additional Registry Settings later in this article.

    System File Checker will also check and repopulate the %Systemroot%\system32\dllcache directory. If the dllcache directory becomes corrupted or unusable, SFC /SCANNOW, SFC /SCANONCE, SFC /SCANBOOT, or SFC /PURGECACHE can be used to repair the contents of the dllcache directory.

    SFC.exe scans all protected system files and replaces incorrect versions with correct Microsoft versions. The following shows the syntax:

    SFC [/SCANNOW] [/SCANONCE] [/SCANBOOT] [/CANCEL] [/QUIET] [/PURGECACHE] [/CACHESIZE=x]


    /SCANNOW Scans all protected system files immediately.

    /SCANONCE Scans all protected system files once.

    /SCANBOOT Scans all protected system files at every boot.

    /CANCEL Cancels all pending scans of protected system files.

    /QUIET Replaces all incorrect file versions without prompting the user.

    /PURGECACHE Purges the file cache and scans all protected system files immediately.

    /CACHESIZE=x Sets the file cache size (in megabytes).

    WINDOWS 2000 SYSTEM RECOVERY

    http://windows.about.com/library/weekly/aa040200a.htm

    Try the site above for creating an emergency repair disk. YOu can also use ontrack, (linked below) to keep your system in order.

    ANother emergency repair disk site linked below:

    http://www.winnetmag.com/Articles/In...?ArticleID=284

    Also make sure you have all the latest updates and service packs installed on your windows 2000 installation. Microsoft does a decent job in releasing updates, but I would make sure you have everything updated just to make sure you system is running smoothly.

    IF YOU NEED TO BACK UP YOUR REGISTRY IN WINDOWS 2000 try the site below:
    http://support.microsoft.com/default...;en-us;Q322755



    For future reference, if you ever go to XP, the below will help:

    http://windows.about.com/library/weekly/aa020120a.htm

    http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/p...naging/asr.asp


    try those sites for the automated system recovery and system restore functions. I have used both and they work great. Another thing you can do is use a program that allows you to backup important system files like ontrack systems :
    http://www.ontrack.com/easyrecovery/

    IT allows you to essentially do the same thing as system restore. Works wonderfully well. YOu might also want to make a boot disk for windows XP if something were to happen to cause your system not to boot, this would let you get into the ASR program (automated system recovery)

    http://support.microsoft.com/support.../q310/9/94.asp

    that is if your XP cd is not bootable.

    I hope that helps.

    Msi KT333 Mother Board Via Chipset
    AMD Athalon Xp 2200+
    ARKUA 8568 Heatsink
    Eneremax 600 watt PSU
    1024 mb 333mhz mem
    Thermaltake active mem cooling kit
    GF 4 Ti4600 Msi
    Game Theater XP soun card+external Rack
    Nec 19" flat screen
    60 gig seagate 7200
    120 WD Caviar 2mb cache
    100 WD Caviar 8mb cache
    sony 40x12x48x Cd writer
    Pioneer dvd-r

    and to house all this iv used the Lian-Li 7 usb,

    my futuer specs will have the amd claw hammer, and atis 9700 video card, and a Nforce 2 board to support DDR 400,

    but this current system took an entire 4 months of working the oil feilds to afford, so i dont reccomend tryrin it again, except when the new vid and mem come out,
