I'm going through the recommended procedures, but the check disk will not run. After rebooting the PC starts up normally, then the blue screen with check disk appears for a second or two but is to quick to read what it it says. I also tried to run by going to Start>Run>OK, but the result is the same as above.
What can I do to rectify this problem? Thank you

Can you tell us exactly what recommended procedures...you tried which result in a No-Go?

You tried Start/Run...type chkdsk /r, with a space between the k and the /...and hit Enter or OK?

If you are trying to run the chkdsk on any drive other than C:, then you have to add the drive (e.g., G:) between the k and the blank space...before hitting Enter/OK.

Have a look in the Event Viewer for the chkdsk log.

To open the Event Viewer go to Start > Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Event Viewer. Alternately, go to Start > Run and type in "eventvwr.msc" (without the quotes) and press Enter.

Check in the Application category for an entry called "Winlogon" at the time you ran chkdsk.
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.

Thank you all for the replies. I finally got it working by using "System Mechanic".
