I turned my computer off, and then forgot that i had to look something up so i turned it back on and the computer asked if i wanted to scan the computer with chkdsk or whatever (blue screen) i was in a hurry so i aborted it, then a pop-up came up and said something like "memory.dmp problem, run chkdsk" so the computer booted up and i ran chkdsk and it deleted memory.dmp and did something else that i was not in the room for, and it exited itself so i dont know what else it did.

Nothing has happened yet, just posting to see if i should expect something to be wrong. (hoping that it is nothing)

Hi tursup !!

Ran chkdsk already required by the system? I believe it may be a solution. Once the system starts, click the Start Menu> Run> type "cmd" without quotes> click OK> then type "chkdsk / f / r X: (drive letter of the disk)" and press ENTER.

Well...IMO, it's not wise to shut Windows down prematurely...often results in files which are damaged (may be key files, may not be key files).

As a general rule...chkdsk runs at boot when Windows detects a problem. It wants to try to fix whatever is wrong, thus it tries the 3-step chkdsk routine.

A better alternative when such happens (IMO)...is to let the 3-step run, allow the system to properly boot...then initiate the 5-step chkdsk /r, once the system boots.

Start/Run...type chkdsk /r (with space between k and /) and hit Enter. In response to screen, type Y and hit Enter. Reboot system and allow command to run to completion, system will reboot when done.

What forum/website, in particular?

There doesn't seem to be any conformity how websites establish/maintain logging procedures, IMO.
