Win2000 in a loop checking drives, won't boot.

When trying to boot, Windows 2000 claims two out of four logical drives need to be checked for errors. It does so, then restarts the computer and when Windows starts, goes right back to checking the same drives again.

I can get to Safe Mode.

CHKDSK runs at every boot!

This can be caused by a corrupt registry, you can repair the registry using the steps in the link below

Or

Click Start >Run >type "regedit" {enter}

Navigate to

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager

Double click the "BootExecute" value, and remove all the entries

If this doesn't clear the problem you may well have a problem with your Hard Drive go to the manufacturers website for diagnostic tools

If you do not know the drive manufacturer try some generic drive testers
