I'm hoping someone can please help me with this. Yesterday when I turned on my computer, there was the blue disk check screen on start up. It kept getting stuck at 84% and would then shut down. I was able to bypass the disk check and still get into my computer because it gave me a 10 second countdown but today I am not getting the countdown so my computer won't boot up. I've tried booting in safe mode and it won't boot either. The disk check is still getting stuck at 84% too. How am I supposed to bypass the disk check if it won't give me a countdown now? I really appreciate your help, I work from home and I can't log in to do anything at this point.

You should always consider it a bad sign...when a simple chkdsk cannot complete.

IME, it's usually an indication of a problem with the NTFS file system...or a problem with the hard drive itself.

I suggest running the appropriate respective manufacturer's hard drive diagnostic (long test), after moving valued data files to safety on another drive/system/etc.

I took out my wireless mouse usb before starting up and the disk check gave me the 10 second countdown again, and I was able to cancel it and boot up my computer.... What does this indicate? Is there something wrong with my wireless mouse usb? I always keep it plugged in and never had issues.

Thanks for your advice Hamluis...I'm keeping my fingers crossed that its not something major.
