First off I made a mistake its actually a Dell. And I did try the command prompt suggestion you made. I rebooted the machine and let it attempt the disk check. It just sits there and never actually runs.
Here's what's happening - autocheck detects a dirty bit on c: drive and runs at startup. Unfortunately, autocheck does not run with the repair option - I've never understood why MS never changed that. Anyway, here's what you need to do:
To check the hard drive right-click on a command prompt icon and open as administrator. In the command prompt window type:chkdsk /r (then press ENTER). You'll be told the disk is in use and asked if you want to run checkdisk on the next boot. Say yes, exit the command prompt window, and reboot.

Hey I typed it exactly as a Admin with the cmd prompt and when it restarts it just sits at this screen. Im hoping there isnt a HD problem with it.
Brand of the computer is irrelevant. EXACTLY what happens at boot? Please make sure that when you entered the command in the command prompt window you left a space between the word "chkdsk" and the slash (/). Again, the command is: chkdsk /r

You talking about the diagnostic self check?? I ran that but stopped it when it came to the window where it says everything is okay but there is a additional test that will take 30 mins.
I would run a hard drive test on it or even run the "Repair My PC" by hitting F8 when PC starts and selecting this.
