Fixing Errors On Your PC for Windows Vista,7,8 and 8.1


I'm only going to show those interested how to run chkdsk (check disk) and fix errors, there are other commands mostly you'll just want to run this command. Click the Start button in the Search box, type command prompt in the list of results, right-click Command Prompt, and then click Run as administrator. In the command prompt, type in the following command chkdsk C: /F . Only type what is in bold, what this is going to do is check the drive for error and fix those errors. If the drive isn't locked it will bring up a message asking to scan the drive on the next restart click yes, if the drive is locked it will start scanning automatically. This depending on how large your hard drive is can take some time or not, be patient because this usually always fixes issues people are having that call me, other times I have to look at their PCs. Hope this helps you out.

I was running avast anti-virus while browsing using chrome when I tripped on the power cable and the system shut down. the next time I turned the power on, I got DISK READ ERROR OCCURRED PRESS CTRL+ALT+DEL...


Hello,
Weird problem... situation may have nothing to do with what happened. Your hard drive may have core problems. I would run the BIOS diagnostics if able. Also, boot from the OS install DVD and get to a command prompt where you can run CHKDSK.
Good Luck,
Steve

IO error


The message "The Request Could Not Be Performed Because of an I/O Device Error" appears when Windows is unable to read the data on a storage device.


If this error message appears when attempting to access the files on an input/output

(I/O or IO) device, such as an external hard drive, the file system on the drive could be damaged, the drive could be infected with a virus or the data connector inside the device enclosure could have come loose.


If troubleshooting the drive fails to fix the IO device error, formatting the drive might repair the device.

Connect the external hard drive to the computer.


Run an antivirus program.


Click the "Scan" tab or button, then click "Custom."

Uncheck all items in the list except for the drive letter assigned to the external drive.


Click "OK." Click "Scan" or "Scan Now" to run a virus scan on the hard drive.

Quarantine or remove any infections the virus scanner detects.


Click "Start." Input "cmd.exe" into the search field.

Press "Enter" to open Command Prompt. Input "chkdsk <drive>: /f /r" into Command Prompt.


Replace "<drive>" with the letter assigned to your external hard drive.

Press "Enter" to run CheckDisk on the drive.


CheckDisk will search for and repair detected errors or bad sectors.


Burn the files on the external hard drive to a set of DVDs or move the files to another drive, if possible.

If the IO device error reappears when attempting to move the files, disconnect the external hard drive from the computer.


Remove the power adapter from the drive.

Check the documentation included with the drive for instructions to take the drive apart.


If no instructions are available, contact the manufacturer for instructions or find out if disassembling the drive will void the drive's warranty.


Remove the screws securing the faceplate to the drive or from the edge of the enclosure. Insert the edge of a small, flathead screwdriver in between either side of the enclosure to wedge both sides apart.


Check the connections to the drive.

Confirm that the IDE or SATA interface is plugged into the back of the drive.


Reassemble the external hard drive, reconnect the power adapter and reconnect the drive to the PC.


Attempt to access the files on the drive.

If the IO device error reappears, return to Command Prompt. Input "format /fs:fat32 <drive>:" into the command-line prompt.


Replace "<drive>" with the letter assigned to the external hard drive.


Press "y" when the message "Proceed with Format (Y/N)?" appears.

The process will format the drive, erasing all data on the disk.


If the drive still fails to function after format, you will need to replace the drive.


Hope this helps

Upon connecting the samsung G2 to my laptop, it says "needs formatting" but when click the format disk option it says "disk can not be formatted'


Many errors in Windows are caused by corrupt files. Those files could have become corrupt because of errors on your hard drive. The Check Disk tool checks for errors and attempts to fix any it finds.
Warning: Use Check Disk at your own risk. On rare occasions I've experienced problems when using check disk in Windows Vista. Here are a few things to watch out for:
If you run check disk and your computer has to be restarted to scan your computer and your computer hangs at a black screen when it boots up, do the following: Turn the computer off and back on and immediately start pressing F8 on your keyboard repeatedly. A black screen with different boot options will appear. Select to use the Last known good configuration (advanced) boot option.
Never stop check disk once it has started. It could take hours to days to scan your hard drive depending on its size. How-to Use Check Disk Using the Graphical User Interface (GUI)
Open the Start Menu and click Computer. Right-click the drive you want to perform a check disk on and select Properties. Click the Tools tab in the drive Properties window.

Click Check Now under error checking. To perform a complete check of your hard drive for errors check off both options in the check disk window that pops up.

Click the Start button to start the process. If you are trying to check a hard drive that has open files you'll get a message similar to the one shown below.

Click Schedule disk check. Disk check can't check a hard drive that has open files. Your computer will reboot and check the disk before Windows Vista boots up. If you want to cancel the scheduled disk check for any reason, check out this guide.
Using the Command Line Interface
Check Disk can also be run using the command line (DOS) prompt.
Open the command prompt with administrative privileges by typing cmd in the search box in the Start Menu and right-click cmd.exe in the search results and then select Run as Administrator. Type chkdsk followed by one or a combination of switches listed below in the command prompt. If you run the check disk (chkdsk) command from the command prompt by typing just chkdsk check disk will run in read only mode. All it does is check for errors. It will not fix any errors it finds unless told to do so. This is done by adding switches when typing chkdsk in the command prompt.
A switch looks something like chkdsk /F. Notice the switch /F after the chkdsk command.
Below is a list of most of the switches used with the check disk command. You can use one or a combination of switches with the check disk command.
D: If you want check disk to scan a drive other than the C: drive, add the drive letter after chkdsk to tell it to scan that drive. If the drive is called X: on your computer it would look like chkdsk X:.
/F: The /F switch is the most common of the chkdsk switches. It tells chkdsk to fix any errors it finds. Chkdsk can't fix errors on a disk that has open files. If chkdsk asks you if you want to check the drive next time Windows Vista boots or dismount the drive choose to check the drive next time Windows Vista boots. Never choose to dismount the drive. That option should only be used by a professional.
/R: The /R switch tells chkdsk to attempt to recover any bad sectors of the hard drive if any are found. A bad sector is a spot on the hard drive that can't hold saved data anymore.
/I: The /I switch tells chkdsk to perform a less detailed but faster disk check.
/C: The /C switch tells chkdsk to skip the checking of cycles within a folder structure which reduces the scan time. Don't ask me what this means.
An example of an exhaustive disk check using the command line interface is:
chkdsk D: /F /R
The check disk command shown above will fix any errors it finds and also attempt to recover bad sectors of the D: drive if any are found.
If all else fails, try 3rd party tool SpinRite.
