I tried running checkdisc t takes forever to run,once more to reach login then freezes up at the login. if i shut it down using the computer button it restarts and the process starts again. I ended up unplugging it last night and it is still the same this morning. can you please tell me what to do?

You forgot to tell if this happens on an iPhone, an iPod or an iPad.

Choose from http://forums.cnet.com.

Also please tell:
- why did you run chkdsk (or if you only tried to run it, in that case: why didn't it run)
- what happened when you did it
- what exactly happens when you boot

If you shutdown using the power button it's normal that chkdsk runs. So that's not wrong. That's good.
