Chkdsk help

by learningmom / March 12, 2008 4:25 AM PDT

Chkdsk runs when I start my computer. It completes 3 of 3 stages. Apparently it finds nothing wrong but then it just stops. It won't reboot the computer and I can't get out of it unless I shut off the computer but when I start it again it runs the chkdsk again with the same results.
How do I stop this?

Thanks for the reply but that doesn't seem to work.
I can not quit chkdsk. It says to press any key to skip it but when I do nothing happens and it just runs anyway. After it completes 3 of 3 stages it just stops. I can't get to windows. It just stays on the chkdsk screen. I've let it sit for hours and nothing changes.
I'm barely more than a novice when it comes to tweaking the computer so if I'm not giving enough info let me know.

Check Disk workaround

You could try booting into Safe Mode and see if you can just get around the check disk issue to then resolve it in another way (i.e. system restore).
