Won't boot up

A screen reads that Chkdsk is verifying files, checking disks for consistency. It goes through 3 stages of this. After that, it goes to Microsoft Logo Corp. screen with logo and then it goes back to the checking disks for consistency screen. It does this repeatedly. How do I get my computer to exit this screen and actually start up.

How to display Errors found and Repairs made CHKDSK


How to display Errors found and Repairs made by the CHKDSK Command
The Chkdsk command is used to verify the integrity of a file system and is capable of correcting discrepancies in system data files. This command has been with us since DOS days and has been modified by Microsoft as required to meet the requirements of new operating and file systems as they evolved.
If you execute the Chkdsk command from a command prompt without using the F (fix) switch, Chkdsk runs in the read-only mode. As Chkdsk runs its tests on the drive, it displays the results of these tests on the monitor screen and the test results remain there for you to read until you close the CMD box.
However there are several drawbacks to running Chkdsk in the read-only mode, especially on an active NTFS volume (usually C:)
1. Chkdsk cannot make any corrections to the drive while in the read-only mode.
2. If Chkdsk encounters more than minor errors, it will not complete all of its tests.
3. If you are running Chkdsk in the read-only mode on the active partition, Chkdsk frequently reports disk corruption and other file system errors which do not exist. This happens when the system modifies the disk during the Chkdsk testing sequence.
Considering the above, there is little to be gained by running Chkdsk in the read-only mode.
You need to run Chkdsk/F at the command prompt to test the drive and to correct any errors found.. As soon as you make this entry the system responds with:
"The type of file system is NTFS. Cannot lock current drive."
"Chkdsk cannot run because the volume is in use by another process. Would you like this volume to be checked the next time the system restarts? (Y/N)."
After you key in "Y" (followed by enter) and re-boot, the operating system starts to load and you are advised that a disk check has been scheduled and unless you cancel it, Chkdsk/F will start to run in a few seconds.

Nothing appears on desktop computer ..says hard drive problem and go to trouble shooter..i do not have disc or manual ...can u advise?


If there is a problem with the hardrive you need to able to run chkdsk this checks the disks for any problems and recovers any lost file files through the windows i386 file. to do this you will have create a startup disk at this site:

http://www.nu2.nu/bootcd/

Scroll down and you will find write ups on how to make a start up cd-rom, you will probably need a cd-rom that reads ntfs, you should find one here.
ensure the pc with the problem is set up to boot from the cd-rom drive.

You can find chkdsk program on windows, so use another pc to download the chkdsk program goto start bar and click search for files and folder and enter chkdsk into the search bar, once found, copy and paste it to your desktop for easy access, follow the onsite tutorials on how to make a boot disk and then add the chkdsk disk program to it and burn it to a cd-r disk, insert it into your cd-rom drive and boot the mechine.

On the command prompt just type in chkdsk c: /f and it will do the rest, once done take the cd out of the cd-rom and reboot the pc, it should now be up and running again, post back if you have any problems and i will try to help out with them, good luck.

Your operating system or Master Boot Record is corrupt. Which version of windows are you using?

It may be possible to repair the problem with your windows disk. Boot from the Windows disk but make sure you read the instructions for windows repair carefully because some options will format your hard drive.

To rescue the data here are some things I do:
Make a boot disk with USB support and transfer the contents of your drive ton an external harddrive. Or, you could place your hard drive in another computer as a slave drive and retrieve your files that way.

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.

CAN'T START UP COMPUTER DETECTS NO MOUSE OR KEYBOARD


The Blue Screen Your Are Talking About Its UNMOUNTABLE BOOT VOLUME and in case of blue screen mouse and keyboard are not detected as WINDOWS are not loading....

There Are 3 Ways To Resolve It But For All 3 Methods We Need The MICROSOFT WINDOWS XP OPERATING SYSTEM DISK...
1st Method Is WINDOWS RE-INSTALLATION. But In This Case All Your Data Would Be Gone..

2nd Method Is WINDOWS PARALLEL RE-INSTALLATION and in this method your data would be saved but you need to install the DRIVER'S SOFTWARE'S and other APPLICATIONS.

3rd Method Is The Easiest And I Prefer Which Is To Repair The Booting Sector.

To repair the volume, follow these steps: (10-15 Minutes)
  1. Start your computer by inserting the Windows startup disks or the MICROSOFT WINDOWS XP OPERATING SYSTEM DISK if your computer can start from the CD drive.
  2. When the Welcome to Setup screen appears, press R to select the repair option.
  3. If you have a dual-boot or multiple-boot computer, select the Windows installation that you want to access from the Recovery Console.
  4. Type the administrator password when you are prompted to do this.

    Note If no administrator password exists, press ENTER.
  5. At the command prompt, on the drive where Windows is installed, type chkdsk /p, and then press ENTER.
  6. It will ask u to overwrite the boot sector so press Y and overwrite the boot sector.
  7. type FIXBOOT and hit enter.
  8. When Everything Is done and new boot sector has been written successfully... type EXIT.
  9. Take Out Windows Disk and Restart Your System..
Some things that you should know before you try this solution loadTOCNode(4, 'resolution');
  • If the file system is damaged, you can use chkdsk /r command to repair the volume. However, if you use the chkdsk /r command, you may lose some data.
  • You will need the Windows startup disks or the Windows installation disk. If you do not have them, contact the computer manufacturer for help in obtaining the disks.
  • You will need the administrator password to complete the steps.
To repair the volume, follow these steps: 40-45 Minutes Complete File Repair
  1. Start your computer by inserting the Windows startup disks or the MICROSOFT WINDOWS XP OPERATING SYSTEM DISK if your computer can start from the CD drive.
  2. When the Welcome to Setup screen appears, press R to select the repair option.
  3. If you have a dual-boot or multiple-boot computer, select the Windows installation that you want to access from the Recovery Console.
  4. Type the administrator password when you are prompted to do this.

    Note If no administrator password exists, press ENTER.
  5. At the command prompt, on the drive where Windows is installed, type chkdsk /r, and then press ENTER.
  6. At the command prompt, type exit, and then press ENTER to restart your computer.
  7. After you repair the volume, check your hardware to isolate the cause of the file system damage.
If this procedure does not work, repeat it, but type fixboot instead of chkdsk /r in step 5.

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.
