First things first, my computer has been freezing up for at least several months now. It's usually when I'm watching a video or a twitch stream. It happens randomly. My google chrome freezes/crashes along with my windows explorer. I've tried restarting my windows explorer but it never starts back up. Shutting off the computer usually takes 5+ minutes so I've just been pressing the power button to turn off my computer real quick. So, it happened again about 15 minutes ago and then I restart and get this hard drive consistency thing. I've looked around a bit and I'm still not sure what it could mean... hopefully my hard drive isn't dying.

 

PC specs: 

i5-3570k

seagate barracuda 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM

 

I ran the chkdsk in /r and this is what I got.

Maybe I'm just worried or it could just be that I shouldn't turn off my computer using the power button?

Please...run the chkdsk /r command, not just chkdsk.  As stated, running just chkdsk results in a read-only mode where nothing is even attempted other than reading.

 

Start/Run...type chkdsk /r and hit Enter.  Type Y in new screen and hit Enter.  Reboot the system.  The command will execute before booting into Windows.

 

Do not post the results of the scan...just tell us if the same problems exist.

 

FWIW:  Doing hard shutdowns is an established way of damaging system files.  Even though such is mandated by circumstance at times...you should always run the chkdsk /r command afterwards...to try to counteract any possible damage done to the files or the file system.
