Hi,
I started my pc today and it goes straight to Checkdisk, which I understand is a probable hard drive problem; it gets to I think stage 3, and then seems to be looping at " recovering orphaned files" Trouble is, I don't know if has looped or is simply doing its job, so far its been doing this 3 hours, and does it each time I hard boot.Do I just leave it for 24 hours? The screen is whizzing through commaneds so fast I cant tell if it is doing something different each routine of is stuck! Hope this not a stupid post but I am getting very worried now!!
