I get a message each time I sttart up our compaq F730 note book. "CHKDSK is verifying file""Disks need to checked for consistency." It gets to 59 percent on the monitor than just stops. Does it on every startup. Tried a partial restore, wouldn't do it. Any ideas? Could it be a hardrive proble? The computer is litely used, one and a half years old. Thanks

How to check the PC system for errors, repair the damages or check disk.


1.) Go to 'Start'

2.) Press run and type CMD
(You will see a box eg: C:WINDOWSsystem32CMD.exe )

3.) Type CHKDSK , press enter
*CHKDSK is verifying files (stage 1 of 3) You have to wait for a few seconds/minutes.
Then you will get a message 'run chkdsk with /F (fix) option to correct these'.

4.) Type CHKDSK /F . press enter
( *Remember there is a space between Chkdsk and F: chkdsk<space>/F )
Again, you will get a message 'chkdsk cannot run because the volume is in use by another process. Would you like to schedule this volume to be checked the next time the system restarts? (Y/N)

5.) Type Y
You will get a message ' This volume will be checked the next time the system restarts.

6.) Now, exit the box and restart your computer.
It will the check the disk. You will see this on your screen as you restart 'A disk check has been scheduled. Windows will now check the disk (stage 1-5)'

*Note: It will take some time to check your system disk. You need to perform 'check disk' regularly so that you can speed up your PC performance and to repair damages in your system.
* You can try it on any kind of Windows PC.

My PC every time i power on chkdsk always appear it says i need to scan my local disc d. What should i do? Do i need to format local disc d alone or the entire system. Thanks and more power


One of Windows annoying so called “feature” is CHKDSK being automatically being run whenever you don’t shut down your computer properly. You get the blue colored screen that says “Checking file system on C: The type of the file system is NTFS. One of your disks needs to be checked for consistency. You may cancel the disk check, but it is strongly recommended that you continue. To skip disk checking, press any key within 10 seconds(s).
Simply pressing any key would stop CHKDSK from running but when you restart your computer, you’ll get this prompt again. Sometimes even after letting CHKDSK scan the drive that it wants to, CHKDSK would still automatically run at next boot! Here’s how to disable or stop CHKDSK at Windows bootup
There are some people suggested to edit the registry but the proper way to disable CHKDSK from starting up is using the /x switch on chkntfs command in command prompt. The /x switch will exclude a drive from the default boot-time check. 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:

Desktop will not start.. will only go through Chkdsk


Try and tap F8 and see if you can boot to safe mode and go to my computer and rt click on C, and pick properties then tools, then
check for errors, and check auto,and scan.

Go to dell.com if you don't know who made the hard drive in your model. Then go to the mfg of the hard drive and download a hard drive diagnostic disk to check your hard drive for bad sectors.

You should go to dell.com and check your warranty and you can also ask dell what you should do.

This link posted below has a lot of drive mfg diagnostic tools.

Error message


That is not an error, Windows is trying to verify that there are no issues with your hard disk. Is what you wrote above all that you see? If so then check disk is freezing before it completes. Try to cancel the chkdsk before it starts by pressing any button when it prompts you to, log into windows, back up everything up that you need and restart your laptop. Worst case scenario you need to reinstall windows on your laptop
