Hello Experts:

I have a computer that, when started, it says: "autochk proggram not found - Skipping AUTOCHECK" and keeps resseting itself.

I've alreade looked for an answer for this problem and found that it can be caused because the partition is hidden, but this is not the problem, Can you give me any solution to this problem?

This guy, http://www.bootdisk.com has several, very handy boot disks.  He wants $4 for the Windows XP, NTFS boot disk (ISO and floppy) and it includes a version of CHKDSK that will probably fix your problem.
What it is; though, is that the hard disk is corrupted and you won't know how bad the problem is until you can run CHKDSK.  IF THERE ARE ANY FILES YOU NEED TO BACKUP, you need to put the drive in a working system as a second drive and abort the AUTOCHK it will probably try to run when the system boots.
Write back for more instructions if this is what you need to do.
