Operating System Version:Microsoft Windows XP Professional
Problem Application Name & Version: Check Disk
Problem Hardware Make & Model: AMD Athalon 1.1GHz
Error Messages: \Pagefile.sys entry contains nonvalid link
the size of the \Pagefile.sys entry is not valid
the size of \Recycled\Dc4.tmp entry is not valid
\Recycled\Dc4.tmp is cross-linked on allocation unit 1695162

I can still log on to Windows by bypassing CHKDSK.
I can't use start>run>CHKDSK /r for some reason as it will just display the error messages again at the next reboot. Can anyone help me fix this?

I've tried defragmenting too but at 94% of analysing there is an error with the Dc4.tmp file

I would empty the recycled bin to get rid of the temp files and then delete the paging file, run CHKDSK and if this time it completes, recreate the paging file.

1. Right click "My Computer" and select "Properties"
2. Go to the "Advanced" tab
3. In the "Performance" section, click on the "Settings" button
4. Go to the "Advanced" tab
5. In the "Virtual Memory" section, click on the "Change" button
6. Select "No Paging File" and hit the "Set" button
7. Hit OK, OK, OK (If asked to reboot say no at this point)

Open an MS-DOS Windows and run 'CHKDSK /r' and reboot.

Hopefully this time CHKDSK will complete!

Go back and recreate your Paging File by selecting "System managed file" in the Virtual Memory settings and then hit the "Set" button.
