Hello Tru Techie.

Press Ctrl + Alt + Delete and then go to File --> New Task. Type chkdsk /f /r then press enter, type Y to confirm for next boot, press enter then reboot.

Windows will appear to load normally, then the monitor will show progress of the scan, rather than going to Windows. Do not disturb this. This will take an hour or so before it gets to the desktop.

Let me know how it goes.
