It's been a little while since this started so ...

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.

Removing bad updates then reinstalling them

Go into Add/Remove Programs
Click the little box on the top that says Show All Updates
Scroll through and find the offending update and remove it.
Now try updating again and see if it corrects the faulty update.

If you are unsure which update it was uninstall all updates up until the date that the issue started and then reinstall them one at a time until all are updated correctly and/or the problem update has been identified,

Let us know how it goes.

Thanks Phillpower2,

I'll do that as soon as I can. But in the meantime, do you have any ideas on how to get it past being frozen on the Checking System consistency black screen?

Thanks again,

Brent

You could try a System Recovery http://www.sevenforu...ry-options.html and how to access the Advanced Boot Options http://www.sevenforu...ot-options.html

Good luck.
