It is not normal to see nothing on the screen when chkdsk is running. It should not take longer than a couple of hours unless there are serious errors on the disk. Running chkdsk on a bad disk can cause data loss. How long has chkdsk been running?
If you tap F8 during boot do you see the Advanced Boot Options?

I would not turn it off until you see no hard drive activity.

If the drive has been doing this for 5 hours I would wait three more hours then turn off the computer. When rebooting tap F8 for the advanced boot menu.
Boot to Safe Mode to see if you still get the computer starting a chkdsk do a hard shutdown. Hold the power button down until shutdown.
Reboot and under Advanced Boot Options select Repair Computer and do a System Restore to a date just before the problem. If you don't have a restore point then at the Advance Boot Options select Use Last Known Good Configuration.
If the computer still starts chkdsk shut the computer down. Tap F8 at boot. Select Repair Computer and then command prompt. At the command prompt type
chkntfs /x c:
Reboot. The above command will stop auto chkdsk.

Did you use do chkntfs /x c: at the command prompt? That should have stopped chkdsk from running.
I think at this point you need to first pull any important data off the computer and back it up to a external hard drive then check the disk for errors. Download UBCD. Burn the iso to disk and boot. At the menu screen select Parted Magic. Copy your files to an external using this guide.
After you have copied your files. Click Disk Health on the desktop of Parted Magic and run the short/long tests. Disk Health is GsmartControl.
What is the make and model of the computer?

Okay, I see from the first post this is a custom build. Is there any data that needs to be backed up first?
