My computer (Asus Q551L w/ Windows 8.1 & ~1TB HDD) has been acting up recently. More often than normal (it didn't use to at all) explorer.exe has been crashing and rebooting. Sometimes I'll just be moving files around or switching windows and it'll randomly crash.
Also, when I go to make a new folder it's slow as [bleep]. Same with a lot of things in Explorer.
I ran chkdsk /f /r but while I was running it I spilled water on my keyboard and freaked out, rebooting the computer to check what damages there were. No problems there, but at the time the scan had been stuck on 10% for about three hours. I haven't scanned yet, but I was wondering if there is some other thing I can do to view a report of the kinds of problems I may have in my hard drive and if chkdsk /f /r is the only way to fix. I spend a lot of time on my computer so options that I can be on it are the best, but if I need to be on a different laptop I can be.
