Have you let it finish? It can sometimes indicate hard drive problems. I would suggest downloading seatools for windows and running a short generic test and then a long generic test to see if the hard drive is having issues.

To err is human but to really screw things up, you need a computer!

The 100 characters minimum is to ensure posters provide adequate information - it is often too sketchy. For example, the computer make and model number is always useful if you want focussed help.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

✔ Best Answer
To Stop Error Checking from running at startup.

If you have drive C: as your hard drive, then the command to disable chkdsk from scanning C: drive would be:
chkntfs /x c:
If you have 2 drive, C and D, you can disable chkdsk with the command below
chkntfs /x c: d:
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
First click Start> Run> bring up a command prompt by typing in "CMD" and type " fsutil dirty query d: ". This queries the drive, and more than likely it will tell you that it is dirty. Next, type (Copy and Paste) CHKNTFS /X D: The X tells Windows to NOT check that particular drive on the next reboot. At this time, manually reboot your computer, it should not do a Chkdsk and take you directly to Windows.
