Re: "Checking file system on C."
 
This is probably not good, but what moved you to run chkdsk in the first
place?

Re: "Checking file system on C."
 
Sir Earle --

See the earlier postings by GTS. Might a "consistency check" and the chkdsk
utility be related from a functional viewpoint (i.e., in attempting to
assess whether there is a hard drive problem)??

Re: "Checking file system on C."
 
Sorry Gordon, I should have told you run it in an elevated command prompt.
That message isn't good. I suggest you run the Dell Diagnostic now. If it
reports an error code, write it down and pursue warranty service.

Re: "Checking file system on C."
 

Hi everyone,
I have a problem with the CHKDSK. When booting my laptop the
consistency check comes up and cancelles itself every single time. This
has been going on for over a week now.
Starting the check myself doesnt do anything. It just says "To cancel
press any button" then counts down to 1 and cancelles itself. How can I
stop the cancelling or actually have my file C checked. I have not
noticed any missing files or malfunctioning programms... What shoudl I
do? What seems to be the problem?

Thanks for your help!

Re: "Checking file system on C."
 

It is best to start a new thread when you have a new problem.

Try booting into safe mode - command prompt only, and running chkdsk
from there. Perhaps that will work.
