Starting up problem with Chckdsk

Microsoft Windows xp home edition sp2b

Specs: Windows XP, 960 kb
I am reposting this in the XP category...
When I start up, I get the screen saying it needs to "check file and folders," but at the bottom of the screen where it gives the percentage scanned, it stays at zero, and after a couple of minutes, goes to a black screen and and says "machine_check_exception STOP:Ox000009c,."
If I hit anything on the keyboard (on the first screen) before it attempts to scan, it starts up fine, and runs fine. It's been doing this for a couple of other error msgs come up.
If I set it to do chkdsk at startup, it goes thru to 100% with no problems, but then immediately tries to do it again and stops at 0 percent. Any way to fix this?

use it, so be careful. If it bothers you disregard my post.
Copy and Paste below.

Follow these steps, and then quit Registry Editor:

Locate and then click the following key in the registry:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\BootExecute
On the Edit menu, click Modify.

Method 3: Confirm that your hard disk or your file system is not damaged
To confirm that your hard disk or your file system is not damaged, start your computer from the Windows XP CD-ROM, load Microsoft Recovery Console, and then use the chkdsk command-line command.

Note To start your computer from the Microsoft Windows XP CD-ROM, your CD-ROM or your DVD-ROM drive must be configured to do so. For information about how to configure your computer to start from the CD-ROM or the DVD-ROM drive, see the documentation that is included with your computer, or contact the computer manufacturer.

Important Microsoft recommends that only advanced users or administrators use the Recovery Console. You must know the Administrator password to use the Recovery Console. For additional information about how to use the Chkdsk command-line command to check and to repair a damaged hard disk, click the following article numbers to view the articles in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:

Note If the Chkdsk.exe program reports that it cannot access your hard disk, you may be experiencing a hardware failure. Examine all the cable connections and jumper settings on your hard disk. Contact a computer repair professional or the manufacturer of your computer for more assistance.

If the Chkdsk.exe program reports that it cannot fix all the hard-disk problems, your file system or your Master Boot Record (MBR) may be damaged, or it may no longer be accessible. Try appropriate Recovery Console commands such as fixmbr and fixboot, contact a data recovery service, or repartition and reformat your hard disk.
