    One of your disks needs to be checked for consistency

    Hi,
    I am getting following continuous error on start up: "One of your disks needs to be checked for consistency" I also tried to run or skip chkdsk, but it still giving the same error. I have windows vista installed on my computer. Can anybody help me?

    Try to install the windows on other hard drive. Copy all the data to another external hard drive. There may be RAID issues. It may happen when the drive is powered off while writing to disk or if the drive is starting to fail. Try to boot from windows installation CD.

    Try this:
    • Open a command prompt
    • Type chkdsk e: /f
    • Press Enter

    It will stop checkdisk on every boot.

    I had the same problem. It was because of stuck Enter Key on keyboard causing problems with CHKDSK. So check all the keys before you start the system. Also check this Microsoft's KB article: http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=831426. Also run chkdsk /r to scan for bad sectors
