Open Help and Support and type in "Chkdsk." This will give you a run down for using XP's drive error checking utility. Scandisk is not used on NT based systems. Read the Help and Support Documents and it will tell you how to thoroughly check your disks for errors using Chkdsk.

You can open Windows Explorer, right click on the drive you want to check for errors and select "properties." In that window select Tools> Error Checking. You can run Chkdsk with different options there. It won't be able to perform a complete analysis of the drive you are operating on until it reboots. However, it can perform full analyses on all unmounted partitions. Hope that helps.
