Alright, I so my title may be a tad misleading to some. I can start the computer, however, chkdsk always runs and I can't press the key to get around it. The reason I want to get out of chkdsk is to boot into safe mode because after chkdsk crashes at about 60-75% I get booted to the Windows 8 recovery screen where I can system restore and all that. I cannot get into safe mode because of chkdsk in the way and I can't turn it off in CMD. I have tried all of my restore points but it always said failed something about background.js. I can provide pictures of the errors since I'm on my mobile phone right now. It's a lenovo y510p. Last program I installed was battlefield 4 and all of its Dlc.
I forgot to mention, I incase I can't fix anything I do have a warranty with best buy :)

Try this boot into recovery mode and open the command line tool

 

type in

sfc /scannow

But I think this could be a drive issue.

 

If you have an CD or bootable usb stick from your System try from there to repair your system.

Check the harddisk, put it in another computer

 

Try this too

 

"sfc /scannow"

 

to verify windows file integrity. Then

 

"chkdsk /f"

 

to check the harddisk for errors.

Tried to delete background.js along with the bath it gave. Access denied. Tried to change attributes. Access denied. Note that this is CMD admin on the recovery.

I'm not sure but background.js isn't a regular systemfile. Trojan/Adware? Found in several threats in combination with crossrider.
