not all the just seems to at startup.

55% to 65%

Acer Aspire Laptop Windows 8  64 bit S3-391 is this normal?

My computer skills are not good at all, about average.

I got one more question. In CMD with administrator rights. When I scan sfc/scannow it stop at 55% and says theres corrupt files. This computer is about 5 months old. Is there any way to fix these files ( easy ) to be able to complete 100% scan? Thanks, Chuck

Win 8 machines do a ton of stuff at boot up, which is why they recommend to just put it to sleep instead of rebooting.

What you describe sounds normal, unless it goes on for over 5 minutes.

 

The live checkdisk in Win 8 ain't great and there's little doubt that you need a good diskcheck, so open a command window with admin rights and copy and paste the following in

chkdsk /r C:

then hit Enter.

You will then be asked if you want to schedule the diskcheck at boot up. Hit Y for yes then enter and reboot the machine.

Will this take of the scan now problem? The way describe the bootup seems very normal, it probably takes about 30 seconds to boot it,s clear off. Thanks, Chuck

That's what we are hoping for.

You'll know as soon as you try it.

Fingers crossed....
