Now first of all, yes. I clearly understand this is not the topic but im new to the forums and dont know which topic this goes to. Anyway, as stated. A few weeks ago, or a month, I went on my desktop, and typed in the cmd console chkdsk r/C: command which checks my primary drive on restart, so then I restarted. Then, when it goes to the checking disk screen, it casually checks then suddenly my monitor goes blank. That means I have no access to the desktop/pc at all. Neither can I skip it. I have a gigabyte mobo therefore cannot safe boot (atleast dont know how to) and neither does mashing f8 work. I have windows 8.1 on it I think. I've tried leaving it on for a couple of hours since 10% only takes like idk 1-5 minutes

 

PLEASE HELP! I NEED AN ANSWER URGENT!

:welcome:   Vepr,

 

Windows 8 and 8.1 tend to load so quickly that it is most difficult (quite often not possible) to boot into Safe Mode, one thing that does sometimes help is pressing Shift + F8, if you have a Windows 8/8.1 disk and the computer concerned has an optical drive (DVD) you should change the boot sequence so that it boots from that first and the HDD second, place the installation disk into the drive then restart the computer, this should get you into the system repair etc options.

 

What happens if you try and boot the computer as you normally would and why are you running chkdsk in the first place, it is not a tool that needs or should be overly used as it is intended for diagnostic use when things have gone wrong.

 

Please provide information about your computer, this includes is it a notebook or desktop, is it a custom build or brand name such as Dell or HP, if it is a brand name provide the model name or series number (not serial) if a custom build post as many hardware details as you can, providing these details will enable us to better assist you.

 

 

Additionally a couple of forum tips for you;

 

Do not reply to your own OP or last reply as it may lead to your request for help being overlooked, staff and members who assist on the forums will always check out a topic that has not received any replies to see if they are able to help, if you reply to your own OP it will appear to others viewing the board that you have received a reply and so are already being helped.

If you have something to add while waiting for a reply use the edit tab – bottom right of the dialogue input box and this will ensure that no information that you provide is overlooked (this can happen if your topic has more than one page)

Can you answer the above question that I also asked.

 

Running chkdsk will not solve Skype or Steam issues btw.

Alright, thanks anyway. I've gotten a new laptop and its peaceful so may you please close the thread?

 

p.s. when I boot up, it shows automatic repairs, then I click advanced options and think for a couple of seconds to refresh pc but then monitor shuts off, if I restart, it just goes to chkdsk immediately

No problem and if you wish to pick the topic up again you can post back here as we don`t close Tech topics only mark them as Resolved or Solved if and when the thread is concluded.
