Hi, I have same problem with a member in this thread:

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/483046/checking-file-system-in-c/

 

My computer also shows this message "Checking file system on C: The type of the file system is NTFS. One of your disk needs to be checked for consistency. You can cancel the disk check, but it is strongly recommended that you continue. To skip disk checking, press any key within(10)seconds."

Yes i did have unproper shutdown cause of the blackout. And followed by a bluescreen while playing some game & application.

I have followed advice to check fsutil dirty query C: and the result said that my C drive isn't dirty, so what should i do next? thx :D

Click > Start and in > "Start search" type cmd.
Hold SHIFT and CTRL keys, press Enter.

At the prompt in the command window that opens, type:
fsutil dirty query C:
and press "Enter".

Does the result of this indicate the drive is "Dirty"?
 

Thanks -

Hi

 

I would suggest running hard disk manufacturer's diagnostic test to make sure the drive is in good condition. Can you please post the brand name of your hard drive ?

First I would run a normal Disk Check / r
Run a Disk Check on your C: drive in Windows Vista or Windws 7:
• Click the Start button and select Computer
Right-click on C: (or your main Hard Drive letter) and select Properties
• Click on the Tools tab
• Under Error-checking click the Check Now... button and click Continue at the User Account Control prompt
• Mark the 2 boxes next to Automatically fix file system errors and Scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors
• Click on the Start button
• When the message box pops up, click the Schedule disk check button and > > Restart your computer
• Once your computer restarts it will check the drive, don't press any keys so that it is allowed to do so
Always allow about 1 to 2 hours (on average) and allow the check to complete all 5 stages -

 

 

Also - When in doubt, always use the Seagate / Seatools tests -
SeaTools for Windows
SeaTools for Windows tests SATA, USB, 1394, ATA (PATA/IDE) and SCSI drives.
It installs onto your system. SeaTools for Windows is completely data safe.
If the drive passes SeaTools for Windows, your troubleshooting can move to other areas.

 

 

Regards -

Do NOT run the chkdsk /r as suggested...please run the hard drive diagnostic suggested by Anshad...first.

 

Depending on the results, someone will suggest the next step.

Hi

 

Can you clarify whether you are still experiencing disk check or blue screens ?
