    My laptop is newish. Maybe 2 months now.
    The model is Advent and I'm running Vista Home Premium.

    The checker wants to check the Vista drive for consistency.

    It want's to scan 3 stages.

    I only gets to the first stage and displayes someting along the lines

    Deleted corrupt entry
    Type code 128 File 19611
    Deleting corrupt record
    Segment 11459
    Readable/writable file not re writable.

    And then does nothing after this.

    If this information is not enough I will re do the scan and take down
    everything displayed.

    But what can be the problem? I download nothing and scan it daily. I
    have touched no system files and have only had a small handful of

    Is this proble something somebody knows how to solve. This laptop was
    bought for me and I cannot afford to have it repaired.

    Hello iMush,
    Please, if you don't mind, the machine does NOT WANT to do anything. It
    only does whatever command YOU have entered. You made it sounded so damn
    As to " And then does nothing after this." It is because it takes time
    , and you didn't either have patience to wait or didn't know you had to
    wait. Re-do the disk check and let the machine do it's task, at it's own
    pace. Disk check always takes time.

    Yes, you have a point, especially it's virtually a new machine. But
    then again, perhaps the machines you have worked with are XPs. Since the
    machine was "deleting corrupt files", it must be on chkdsk /f or even
    /r mode. It takes even longer for that command. So, just go watch the
    TV, or read a book.

    Your correct, all were XP.

    My main concern, not that I mind leaving it to run, is whether the
    checker will leave any harm to it.

    Will it delete anything that will cause the laptop to NOT run

    That is the oly concern I have with leaving to to scan and fix.

    Hello iMush,
    What's that song ? ---" Don't worry, be happy" ?
    You can trust chkdsk. It can't inflict damages.

    Ok so I allowed disk checker to run and went for a bath. I came back an
    the desktop was fine and everything worked

    I left, turned it off via shut down and booted back up and it stil
    prompts to check the same disk :

    Every time I looked at it checking the disk it would still be stuck o
    the area specified in the OP

    Im assuming it got 'bored' of not 'doing anything' and just r

    Problem or nothing to worry about??

    Note: I've not ran the disk check a second time as yet

    Hello iMush
    Somehow, your computer is set to do chkdsk each time you restar
    (reboot). Here is how to stop that : -
    Click START button > click COMPUTER > right click on OS C: > clic
    Properties > top, click TOOLs > click CHECK NOW > (prompt) > click STAR
    That's it. Close all windows. Disk check will not run at reboo
    Here is a link to a tutorial showing you how to run a chkdsk on comman
    prompt IN STEAD of at reboot. You can run it whenever you want, n
    scdedule. Use METHOD 2, OPTION 1

    Did you run


    Assuming you did, then there is a known fault of CHKDSK not completing
    that you can Google for
