Recently tried to repair XP by entering sfc/scannow in the run box. Also tried right clicking C drive to check for errors. Both failed...I was on the internet at the time - is this the reason?

Also noticed an exclamation mark against my sound drivers.

Don't forget there is a space after c and before /
try it this way SFC.EXE /SCANNOW click here

I don't know about the internet connection, I have always done it when offline.

It would not have helped, but when you ran sfc /...did Windows prompt you for a location or CD to replace missing files?

What is the specific problem with your PC?

Did you leave the space in sfc /scannow?

It would also be sensible to run this with all other programs closed - just from the desktop.
