    Checking File system on C:?? Freeze?

    Hi,

    After having a power failure yesterday i went to start my computer today, it came up with the Checking file system on C: screen and got about halfway done than windows started, after trying to play a few games i realized that i was missing some game files. I tried to restart my computer but it is stuck on CHKDSK is verifying indexes (stage 2 of 3)... at 41% . there is no activity on the hard drive light at all. Do you guys have any suggestions???

    Hi, Matt.

    Sometimes it takes CHKDSK a very long time to resolve whatever problem it
    finds. How long did you wait? Five minutes? Five hours? Sometimes the
    delay can be a half-hour or more. Do you see another little dot appear on
    the screen every few minutes? If you restart, does CHKDSK start again at
    the beginning, or does it quickly get to the 41% again?

    The power failure just might have corrupted the HD fatally, but that doesn't
    happen nearly as often these days as it did a couple of decades ago.
    Today's HDs are much more resilient. But fatalities do still happen
    sometimes.

    You might need to run a diagnostic from the HD maker. Seagate makes
    SeaTools and other manufacturers have their own tools. When we buy a HD, we
    usually get those tools on a CD in the box; if the HD was in the PC
    originally, that CD may be in all the packaging in the PC box. If you can't
    find the CD, then you should be able to download the tools from the
    HD-maker's website - if you have a working computer or a friend with one.

    Oh, I just noticed that you are coming into this MS public newsgroup via the
    vBulletin USENET gateway, and messages do not always get relayed back and
    forth properly, so I'm probably not seeing the whole conversation. Please
    check back and let us know how this turns out. To post directly to the MS

    after the restart chkdisk will quickly get to 41%. I have waited 30mins. The hdd came with an acer computer that I replaced all the parts on. I may go buy a new one.
