I have read a few other threads dealing with a similar issue so I am aware this has been discussed before. However, I want to start a thread specific to my problem. When I reboot my computer, I get a screen that tells me that it is recommended that I check my disk for errors. I have to press any key within 10 seconds, to cancel disk check. If I don't cancel this check, I see the error message: "inserting an index entry into index $0 of file 6724" being printed on the screen thousands of time, for about 5 hours. This is followed with a message "Insufficient disk space to correct errors in index $0 of file 6724". After that, Windows starts normally. I have Windows XP on my computer. Recently, there was a trouble development. I can't cancel the disk check. When I try pressing keys on my keyboard during the 10 seconds that I have to cancel the disk check, nothing happens. It is as if my computer is not recognizing my keyboard. After the computer boots up, I can use my keyboard again. May I please ask for your help? Is it possible to do something to ensure that I don't see the message "inserting an index entry into index $0 of file 6724" in the future? If the above is not possible, is it at least possible to enable my keyboard when my computer is booting up, so that I can cancel the disk check? Thank you!
