I'm using Windows 7 and I believe I got an update. After it downloaded and started to install, it rebooted. When it started booting back up, after Windows started I got:Checking file system on C
type of file system is NTFS
volume label is OS
One of your disk needs to be checked for consistency. You may cancel disk check but it is strongly recommended. Cancel by pressing any key to continue . . . and gives me a 10 second countdown. I wait . . . and I wait. It doesn't ever finish checking for consistency. So I wait, 24 hours, the I reset it. When I get the same thing. I wait for 48 hours. I reset again. Finally, Windows boots and I use it for a couple of days. Then my computer dies and stops taking a charge, I replace the powerboard hoping that was the problem and it was. But now I'm back to checking file system C and it freezes after the countdown. I can't even skip the countdown by hitting any keys. It just keeps counting and when it reaches 1, it stays there. Again I wait 24 hours. No change. I reset and wait 48 hours. No change. I'm afraid to keep resetting it because I'm afraid that's how I blew out the powerboard.
I've looked through the forums but haven't found this exact error with the freezing. Any ideas and help would be greatly appreciated.
