It looks like you're not running the CMD as the Administrator. The easier method would be to go under computer, find the drive, and run check disk from the graphical interface.

This guide explains both methods:

Type chkdsk in the start search box. When the icon shows up, right click on it, then click 'Run as Administrator'. Be patient for it to get started.

You have to elevate the system privileges by running as the Administrator. In previous versions of Windows that was not required.
To run chkdsk, please follow the steps in the website that I linked in post#2.

Dont type the command at the start command. Instead:

navigate the start menu to the accessories folder and go to "Command Prompt". Right click on the icon, and click "Run As Administrator" This should prompt your permission then after you grant it, will load the command prompt. You can then use your chkdsk command, or any other for that matter, as you like.

Do not type the chkdsk command in the RUN box.It will turn up like what u say,it will just pop up and dissappear.

Go to run the cmd as administrator and type in the command chkdsk /f

Hope can help you!
