Here recently I went to do a disc check.  As usual it will want to schedule after restart.  Everything went ok the first time.  Upon start up later it would be doing a disc check.  Now I'm getting window popups saying there is a disc problem.  Tried doing another disc check after message and it is just spinning saying it will shut down.  Seems to be stuck in what I'm trying to do to check the disc and make any repairs.  Any fix out there?  Thanks for looking.

If Windows alert you hard disk problem the you should backup your personal data as hard disk could be dying.You can use hard disk manufacturer tool to repair hard disk surface error also view the SMART health report to see hard disk is dying or malfunctioning.

I did the Data Lifeguard Tools for a WD HD that passed the test.

You should still backup your data and do a long test with Data Lifeguard Tools.

Good advice, once your data has been backed up do the following for us;

 

Check the HDD with CrystalDiskInfo 7.0.0 Standard Edition which you can download from here once done grab a screenshot (possibly two) of the results and attach to your next reply for us.

 

To capture and post a screenshot;

 

Click on the ALT key + PRT SCR key..its on the top row..right hand side..now click on start...all programs...accessories...paint....left click in the white area ...press CTRL + V...click on file...click on save...save it to your desktop...name it something related to the screen your capturing... BE SURE TO SAVE IT AS A .JPG ...otherwise it may be to big to upload... Click on the More Reply Options tab then after typing in any response you have... click on Choose File...desktop...find the screenshot..select it and click on Attach This File...on the lower left...after it says upload successful...click on add reply like you normally would.

 

Screenshot instructions are provided to assist those that may read this topic but are not yet aware of the “how to”.

HDD looks ok in the screenshots so can we have a screenshot of Disk Manager please;

 

1. Click on the Start button and then choose Control Panel.
2. Click on the System and Security link.
Note: If you're viewing the Large icons or Small icons view of Control Panel, you won't see this link so just click on the Administrative Tools icon and skip to Step 4.
3. In the System and Security window, click on the Administrative Tools heading located near the bottom of the window.
4. In the Administrative Tools window, double-click on the Computer Management icon.
5. When Computer Management opens, click on Disk Management on the left side of the window, located under Storage.
After a brief loading period, Disk Management should now appear on the right side of the Computer Management window.
Note: If you don't see Disk Management listed, you may need to click on the |> icon to the left of the Storage icon.

I had a difficult time with the disk management to appear for a screen shot.  My snapshot said it was saved to the desktop but couldn't see it.  Had to restart computer so it would show the HD in the disk management plus the snapshot on the desktop.

Apologies, I should have said "expanded screenshot" we need to be able to see the amount of free storage space that is available on the HDD, can you do it again please and grab a screenshot of the whole screen.

Thanks, no problem with the amount of free storage space either which is another +.

 

To see if this is a Windows issue download then run the Windows All in One Repair (free)  from here, disregard the malware guidance but follow the other steps to the letter and in particular ensuring that you first create a new restore point and perform a proper Windows clean boot before running the repair, details for the clean boot here.

I performed the clean boot then restarted to do the windows all in one.  But upon restarting it said restarting windows but wouldn't let me log in to do the repair.  Just sat there with a rhythmic clicking sound.

Can you pinpoint where the clicking is coming from, is it from the HDD.

 

Do not let it hang where it is, it will serve no purpose.

Where do we go from here?  Hd toast?  I disabled what was required for a fresh boot.  Then did the power thing, then was going to run the windows repair and now I can't log in.
