While Windows was shutting down the computer, the power outage happened....

 

Precisely, when the screen shows "Shutting down" message....

 

After power outage was over, I power my computer on again but it didn't detect the improper shutdown....

 

My questions:

(1) What was Windows doing in that phase?

(2) Will my HDD become corrupt because improper shutdown had happened in that phase? Could NTFS handle this kind of situation?

 

Thanks before and forgive my English if there are some mistakes....

Does the system boot into Windows correctly?

 

If so...then run the chkdsk /r command.  Running the chkdsk /r command after any unexpected shutdown helps to overcome any potential problems which may relate to the improper shutdown.

 

Chkdsk From Command Prompt, Win 7 - http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/496613/contextmenu-is-causing-explorerexe-to-crash/?p=3067880 .  There is no need to put the C: in that command, when run, the chkdsk /r runs on the Windows partition by default.

Fortunate to me, I could login to Windows successfully....

I have done " chkdsk /f " and nothing in bad sectors and chkdsk just cleaned 104 unused index.

My questions:

(1) What was Windows doing in that phase?

(2) Will my HDD become corrupt because improper shutdown had happened in that phase? Could NTFS handle this kind of situation?

1.  At this stage Windows is closing any applications that are still open.

 

2.  Corruption does not affect the hdd, but Windows files can become corrupt it they are not closed properly at the shut down.  To see if there are any corrupt files you should run sfc /scannow from the command prompt.

 

 
Please run System File Checker
 
The sfc /scannow command scans all protected system files and replaces corrupted and incorrect versions with correct Microsoft versions.
 
Click on the Start orb rsz_1rsz_1rsz_start_orb_zpshjewtibd.png and then type cmd in the Search programs and files box.
 
In the pane above the search box Programs will appear with cmd below it, right click on cmd and choose Run as administrator.
 
If you are prompted for an administrator password or for a confirmation, enter the password, or click Allow.
 
This will open the Elevated Command Prompt, it will look similar to the image below.
 
command%20prompt%20w8_zpsxjmewau9.png
 
Type in sfc /scannow and then press Enter to start the scan.  Please notice the space between sfc and the /scannow.
 
If the scan finds no integrity  problems the scan will stop.  Type in exit, then press Enter to stop the scan.
 
When the scan is finished please do the following.
 
Click on the Start orb rsz_1rsz_1rsz_start_orb_zpshjewtibd.png then copy and paste the following in the Search programs and files box.
 
findstr /c:"[SR]" %windir%\logs\cbs\cbs.log >"%userprofile%\Desktop\sfcdetails.txt"
 
This will place a new icon on the desktop titled sfcdetails.  Double click on this icon to  
the CBS log, copy and paste the log in your topic.
 
This log may be very large, if you have problems posting it try breaking it into smaller parts.  When you copy these parts you will highlight the section you are going to copy.  If you leave that section highlighted it will give you a quick reference for where you left off.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
