Hi,
I have a HP Pavilion PC with Windows XP OS (667 Mhz, 192 MB RAM, 40 GB Hard disk)

Whenever i boot my system, it always displays the message: "Your disk has to be scanned for errors. Please press any key within 20 seconds to stop disk scanning"
If i allow the disk scanning, it scans my systems, but immediately throws up the an error message in blue background which is something like:"PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA. Error in SMBios.sys etc etc
Please restart the system to continue" and i have to restart my machine.

But when i stop automatic disk checking by pressing any key, my system boots up normally.
It hangs only when i allow the automatic disk checking for errors.
What might be the reason for this?

thanks in advance.
