I ran chkdsk and it ran steps 1 through 3, but at the end it said errors found, but chkdsk cannot continue in read only mode. Does anyone have any ideas on how I can fix this?

Thank you for your time.

IMO...it's a total waste of time to run chkdsk in read-only mode. It doesn't fix anything in that mode.

Try the chkdsk /r command. Start/Run...type chkdsk /r and hit Enter. Type Y in new screen and hit Enter. Reboot the system.

The command will run, then boot into Windows, if all is well.

thanks louis it didnt find anything. i already know that i need to replace my disk drive, but its driving me crazy because i cant figure out why my internet/computer is so slow. sometimes while im browsing around the desktop it works fine and sometimes it doesnt. sometimes while im online its fast and sometimes dial up would smoke me and im paying for one of the highest speeds comcast has to offer for home use.

Can you check this behavior while on safemode with networking to see if it still occurs?

why do you think you need to replace the drive,if it because it has errors on it then that would be the likely cause of you slow computer

Please be more clear on your post as to what you didn't find out. Safemode will differentiate the performance of your system in normal booting, software wise.
