Disk consistency check hangs - Windows XP

Disk consistency check hangs - Windows XP

Whenever I turn on my PC I get a warning that the “system disks must be checked for consistency”. When it starts it goes through step 1 of 3 fine, but when it gets to step 2 (verifying indexes) just stays at 0%. I’ve tried leaving for 10 minutes or so and it never moves. In the end I just have to reboot and skip the consistency check.

It clearly looks as it everything is not ok, and in such a way that chkdsk can't handle it (not a positive sign). I suggest trying an alternative such as diagnostic software from the SystemRescueCD. And a new hard disk.
