"I followed all the rules for disk checking, but the prompt for scheduling the disk checking is not coming."

Could you be more specific - what rules?

If your Vista DVD is handy: Pop it in & boot from it. After booting from your Vista installation CD.

From the Vista Installation Screen.

Do NOT choose - Install Now

Instead, choose Repair your Computer

At the System Recovery Options:

Choose Microsoft Windows Vista from the list & click Next.

You'll have five options for repairing your Vista installation:

1. Startup Repair
2. System Restore
3. Windows Complete PC Restore
4. Windows Memory Diagnostic Tools
5. Command Prompt

Select Command Prompt & run the chkdsk c: /f /r command ... assuming you're checking drive "C" for errors.

Alternatively, you could run this from within Vista since you are able to load the Vista (GUI) Graphical User Interface ... see below.

Open the Start Menu & click Computer.

Right-click the drive you want to perform a check disk on & select Properties.

Click the Tools tab in the drive Properties window.

Click Check Now under error checking.

To perform a complete check of your hard drive for errors check off both options in the check disk window that pops up.

Click the Start button to begin the disk check process.
