Lenovo Y500 laptop stuck on scanning and repairing drive 2

Q: Lenovo Y500 laptop stuck on scanning and repairing drive 2

I have this problem where it takes approximately 5 minutes to boot up my Lenovo Y500 (Windows 8, 64-bit) laptop. I had this laptop for almost an year. It was fine in the beginning, took around 20 seconds to boot. However, over time when I restart my computer because of the windows update or defraging, I noticed that it took extremely long to boot, like 5 minutes. It would be stuck on the Lenovo logo with the spinning circle for 5 minutes. After that there is no problem getting to my desktop. I assumed my HDD (1 terabyte) had a problem. I ran all different programs to diagnose the HDD but it all said it was in "OK" status. So, I did the chkdsk on the CMD and it prompted me that it'll start when I restart my laptop. So I did and now it's stuck on scanning and repairing drive (C: 27% complete for almost 12 hours. I am not sure how long I have to wait and if it's going to be 27% forever. I have approximately 250 GB / 1 TB on my HDD. I tried doing recovery but it would not work either. If I tried booting through safe mode, it would continue to do the same thing, Scanning and repairing drive (C 27% complete and stuck there. So finally, I tried going for the recovery USB boot drive since I cannot use the recovery built-in the laptop nor have the recovery disc. However, I was looking in Google how to make a recovery USB for windows 8 (64-bit) but it all looked like you have to be in Windows 8 in order to make a recovery USB drive, but I am stuck on the Lenovo logo screen. Is there an alternative solution to this? Is there a downloadable recovery drive so I can make it boot to the USB? Thank you.

Preferred Solution: Lenovo Y500 laptop stuck on scanning and repairing drive 2

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I have a Windows 10 HP that's around 2 years old. The computer is in good shape physically but has not had antivirus for a while.

I wanted to do a system restore on my Toshiba laptop but when I tried Windows just restarted, gave me error 0x81000204 and told me I should run chkdsk /R. I tried to run chkdsk and everything was going fine and working at a normal speed until it got to 10%, at which point it got stuck and has been at 10% for over two hours. The circle on screen is still spinning so I know my laptop hasn't frozen or anything. I don't really want to have to cancel the disk check because I want to be able to do my system restore, so I was wondering if there's any way to fix this without cancelling, restarting etc. Or if I have to cancel the disk check, how can I do a system restore without doing another disk check and getting stuck again? Thank you in advance for any help!

A:Scanning and repairing drive (C:) stuck at 10%

Hate to be the bringer of bad news ... but your drive is failing or already failed. When CHKDSK hangs like that, it's a sign of sector failure -- an indication of a failing drive. Cancelling CHKDSK is going to leave the filesystem in a bad state, but since the drive is failing, that's not really going to make a difference at this point.

It would be pointless to do a system restore, since not only does that not restore the whole system (since it only actually resets the Operating System back to an earlier point in time), with a failing drive, I would expect the restore to fail soon after it started -- leaving you in much the same state as you are now.

If you can remove your drive from the laptop, connect it to another PC, you can try using Data Recovery apps to retrieve some of the files and folders. One free one is Recuva. The best one I've used is RecoverMyFiles -- but while you can download and install it for free, you have to buy a license to do the actual data recovery.

This is my first post here. I have been having trouble with my laptop lately. I was trying to install a new driver for my graphics card when my computer suddenly rebooted, I was forced to refresh Windows 8, then an even bigger problem happened, windows kept thinking that it was not registered but when i go to system from the control panel it says it is registered and gives me the product code, so I read somewhere that doing the chkdsk scan will fix this so i did it, first it was stuck 27% for about 4 hours then it is currently stuck at 100%, its been at 100%for about 13 hours now. I do not know what to do, afraid to force restart, might cause errors.
Thanks in advance.

A:Scanning and repairing drive C (chkdsk) stuck at 100%

This batch file runs the dism & sfc commands.
After downloading it right click it & click Properties & Unblock it.
Then right click it & choose Run as administrator.

When dism completes press a key to get sfc to start.
Both scans together might take 2 hours to complete.

When they are done, restart.


If needed run 'em again.

Hey, as the thread title suggests, I'm having troubles with a disk check.

Firstly, I'd like to mention that I've had this PC for a while... I've even taken the whole thing apart and swapped out all of the components (slowly upgraded over time). It's actually at the stage where I've been left with all the old parts as spares, and put everything back together, almost exactly as it was when I bought it. All in all, the initial build is probably 2 or 3 years old now (for the most part, the specs can be found here).
After formatting the hard drive, putting things together back with the old build, and booting up Windows 8 onto it as a gift for my dad, most things were working fine, but one exe file which I copied across wasn't running (at least one which I noticed). I checked up the error code, found people with similar problems, and heard it could just be that the file was corrupted.

So, to get to the main point... I figured it wouldn't hurt to run a disk check, in case there were any other errors or problems. I knew it would take a while, so I opened command prompt, and typed in "chkdsk C: /r", before hitting enter, letting it schedule the disk check for next startup, rebooting the PC, and then leaving it to do its thing. It's been running probably for about 4 or so hours now, and for most of that time it's been at 27% on "Scanning and repairing drive (C:)". Normally I'd just give in and force shut down at this point, but I'm wondering... what's the best cou... Read more

My problem has been a gradual one, and I suspected something like this would happen eventually. For the past two months my computer has been having more and more struggles booting at a quick pace. At times it would freeze mid startup, and then bluescreens. In attempts to fix that issue, I ordered a new SSD and tried to move the bootup sequence onto that new drive. Suffice to say, that only worked so well. Compared to the current issue however, this was nothing.

I just recently moved into a new apartment and upon startup of my computer in the second day, I was told I had a drive error. This limited my access into my D: drive and slowed my access into files considerably. As such, I tried to fix the issue through online tips and personal insight. The problem was not solved, and upon recent restarts the computer has started a scanning and repairing sequence for drive D:. I would like to be patient and trust that the computer could handle it, there were previous issues trying to use the error check tool from the drives properties. It was able to find errors, but never able to make it part the beginning in terms of fixing them. Now for the automatic startup scan and repair, it has become stuck at 2%. It has been like this for 24 hours now, and I'm curious on what everyone else advises for this situation.

I'm just trying to take the advice of being patient and waiting it out. Any help is much appreciated!

Hi all, Last night, I managed to power on an old Flex 3 15" that I had lent to a friend. When it started booting, it prompted me to press a key to skip disk checking. Being curious as to whether the laptop has a HDD issue or not, I let it run. It now has been over 24 hours, and without a progress-bar, I'm not sure if it is stuck or is actually working. I'm not sure as to how much data is on the drive since he returned it to me without giving me his password. Any suggestions as to what to do?

Yesterday, when I switched on the PC, Windows started a scan and repair of one of the disk drive (320 GB SATA, not the boot drive). I thought it was a routine check. But, when I returned home (~9hrs) and saw it is still stuck at 6%, restarted the pc. The drive was accessible but took longer time to show the contents. When I opened one of the folder, it stopped responding and the window was frozen! I restarted the PC, kept the scan running overnight, but still it is stuck at 6% (~10hrs)!! I am worried if my data will be lost.

Can anyone please help or suggest how to fix this issue? I tried running CHKDSK from windows command prompt, but since the drive is NTFS it couldn't do anything.

A:Scanning and Repairing Stuck for Last 10 hours

chkdsk will work on NTFS formatted drives
I suspect the harddrive may have failed
or windows corrupted
Dont allow the repair to continue any longer - I have known this repair to actually cause more damage and getting any data off the drive (assuming you dont have a backup) becomes more difficult if not impossible

Has been like this since 8am in the morning, it's now 3:25am the following night

If so what's best route... Holding down the power button ? Taking battery out ?

Sorry for the vagueness, I Thankyou in advance for any help you can offer me

A:Scanning and repairing drive (L:)

barber101 Hello;Allow me to welcome you to the HP forums!I'm guessing this PC did not come with Win10 preinstalled, right? And, if that is the case, what was installed -- Windows 7? If it's that old, the most likely cause for the great slowdown is a failing drive -- because when sectors start to go bad, instead of the drive reading hundres of sectors per second, it can spend seconds on each sector -- and that can easily cause a 10-minute scan to last for hours, or even, for days. If you can, follow the directions in this link for testing your hard drive: http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c00439024If that confirms your drive has failed, then you need to replace it. Please report back if that is the case.We can proceed once you provide the information.Thanks

Hello everyone,
Im using windows 8.1 which came out with my laptop.
Problem is that, that "scanning and repairing drive ( c : )" stuck at 10% completed...
Today I installed latest TuneUp utilities program, and it recomended me to use ' disk doctor' , after that, Ive restarted laptop as it asked, and now all i see is HP logo and that line, where it says ' S. and R. drive C : 10% completed ..
It been like that for a hour or so...
I had did disk scan n repair month ago as well, but then everything worked without any problems. Then (month ago) and now, while this scan and repair is working, I hear some kind of sounds coming out from my laptop. Like clunking,very quiet beepinv or clicking something like that( never heard these sounds, while i boot and use my laptop normaly).
Ive red in this forum about same situation, but didnt got correct answer.

Is there anyway to cancel this scan? I tried holding power button and restarting like that- on boot it goes on s and r. again, and stucks at 10% ..
If no, how long it will take to scan and fix c disk, if it has 1TB in in?

Thanks for reading, i hope somebody will answer :c

I Have just managed to use raw copy to copy a corrupted hard drive on to a partition on my laptop. I then converted it successfully onto a separate partition.

After shutting down my laptop I tried to use it later on and found that it wouldnt boot up fully. The message says scanning and repairing drive 36%. one hour later it still displayed the same screen. I can only assume that it is the raw partition causing this. I am using windows 8 pro, not the upgrade. Any ideas? Many thanks.

But when I started my laptop this afternoon, Windows ran into Scanning and repairing D: drive.

Does anybody knows why this happen... It wasted my half hour to recover the system . Thanks alot

A:Scanning & Repairing Windows Drive

It's generally triggered because of disk errors or something faulty with the drive.

I remember running 8 To Go on a flash drive, near the end, it did the same thing because the flash was crap.

On a hard drive, there might be something wrong with it. If you can, go Computer, right click on the D drive, Properties, go to the Tools tab, and click on Check and Scan Drive. There might not be anything wrong with it now since it already did that at boot. Laptop hard drives are scary time bombs, since you move the laptop while its moving, it can get a bit damaged, not a lot to make a difference, but over time that adds up and causes issues. Believe me, I've had that happen many a time and seen it happen many a time. Scary stuff.

Good day all,
I recently encountered an issue with a friend's Inspiron laptop I've never seen before, and one that has resisted what I believed would be the fix. Each time the computer is booted, beneath the Dell logo just before the lock screen, a message reads:
Scanning and repairing drive (\\?\Volume{70dec3d5-1deb-41f2-bb24-cb9670d342b0})
The counter reaches 100% in a matter of seconds and boot continues normally. This seems to indicate something wrong with the drive; an integrity scan did not report the drive as failing or damaged and a full chkdsk did not report any issues. Despite this the message persists.
The laptop is running Windows 10, a copy that was downloaded from the upgrade period last year. I suspect it could be a faulty update because the problem only manifested itself a couple of days ago. Let me know if you have any ideas because this one has me stumped!

What is the exact system model?
We might need to check the HDD functionality first.
Restart the system and press f12 key on startup - choose diagnostics. Let it run the diags and if you encounter any errors - make a note of the complete error and report the same to us. These are onboard diagnostics and they might possible pick some error if the hardware is not functional. Also, run an extended / thorough tests on the HDD and memory to check for any possible errors.

When I'm starting my Dell laptop this comes up: Scanning and repairing drive \\?\Volume{2d82395b-9f24-4bed-8877-6c326dc7bb5f}): 100% complete.

It can take a couple of hours for Windows to come up, then it can take up to a couple more hours to sign in. Once signed in, everything is super slow. It freezes up when trying to scan for viruses or open anything up to try and fix this. I tried to change a registry code per this forum and it didn't work, but the advice was from 2013. I was able to finish a scan through Malwarebytes and found 2 viruses and 122 other potential bad things. I also deleted some infected programs that were automatically installed when my son downloaded 2 games in Dec 2014. I've been trying to clean and run antivirus programs for two days now.

I dont know know what else to do. I don't want to buy him a new laptop because this one is brand new and he hasn't used it since Jan 2015 because of this problem and he broke two previous laptops. He needs it for homework.

Please help if you can.

EDIT: Title should say w/o, sry for that.
My PC just randomly crashed while I was watching some YT videos and browsing the web on my 2nd screen.
No BSOD, no error message and it promptly rebooted afterwards and went into "scanning and repairing drive C:" mode after that.
It's working fine now, I'm just a bit concerned about the health of my system.
A Sysnative report, PERFMON report as well as the latest event viewer events in the minutes before the crash are attached.
· OS - Windows 10 64-Bit· Windows 7 BUT I did a FULL new install after the upgrade, so technically it's Windows 10?· Win7 was purchased at some more or less shady site (it's the OEM disk) but the install was done by me, system was DIY-built. Win10 was first an upgrade and then a full fresh install.· Age of Hardware: Can't specify, anything between 3 years to 6 months (DIY-built)· Age of OS: Around 8 Months, not entirely sure.
· CPU: i5-4570
· Video Card: GTX 980· MotherBoard - MSI H87-G41 PC Mate· Power Supply - Be Quiet! E9-400W Straight Power· System Manufacturer: · Exact model number (if laptop, check label on bottom)· Laptop or Desktop?
I hope somebody can help me, I'm a bit concerned as this type of crash never happened before.

A:PC crash w/ BSOD -> scanning and repairing drive

WHere did you get the eventlist report from?If it's the Adminstrative Events logfile, there are only 13 entries in it - unusual IMO. There is a problem with a TCG command around the time of the crash.But, the discussion about this is pretty much over my head:  http://forum.crucial.com/t5/Crucial-SSDs/M500-Issues-with-locking-up-A-TCG-Command-has-returned-an-error/td-p/149506I think the gist of this is to try a clean install of Windows.  I'd also suggest a fresh copy of the recovery media in case the old one has corruptions.Or, you can try my analysis below first. The perfmon report has some issues, but I'll discuss them when I discuss the reports from the SysnativeFileCollectionApp reports.Your UEFI/BIOS (version V3.9) dates from 2014.  Please check at the manufacturer's website to see if there are any UEFI/BIOS updates available for your system.  If you are able to install the update through Windows (without booting from an external drive), then go ahead and update it.  WARNING - if the computer might shut down during this procedure, please don't do it, as this may physically damage the computer and prevent it from booting.Only 7 Windows Update hotfixes installed.  Most build 10586 (TH2/1511) systems have more than this.  Please visit Windows Update and get ALL available Windows Updates.The actual number is not important.  Rather it's important that you checked manually, installed any available updates, and didn't experience ...

Hello, my Lenovo laptop running on Windows 8.1 has been stuck on "Repairing disk errors. This might take over an hour to complete." I've never had any problems with it in the 3 years of using it. I turned it off normally, then in the morning it was started up, went normally through the password part, then it was supposedly loading too long, so my mom shut it down and restarted it and then the program asked to do a system restore to a previous point in time and now it has been stuck on "Repairing disk errors.." for over 16 hours now. There is only the power light on and the fan is working, as well as the keyboard, but the screen only shows the Lenovo logo and the "Repairing disk errors." text. Should I wait and leave it alone, or what should I do? Can I turn it off or will I damage it?

Hi to all!I have a huge problem:My laptop started to freeze and not starting apps so I rebooted it (by pressing and keeping down the power button).Next time it started, when showing the Lenovo logo and the loading spinner it took a lot more than usual, next it showed "Diagnosing your PC" and after a while the screen showed "Repairing disk errors. This might take over an hour to complete"... and it's been like 12hours now. Panicking for my files the first thing I did was to download Ubuntu and create an USB bootable image to backup my files, this went OK.Then, to try to make my laptop to start I've tried, so far: 1) Power the laptop off and press the Novo button which lead me to the Novo Menu and when I choose 'System Recovery' I get a "Onekey recovery partition has damaged so do not lauch the main application" and I get send back to the "repairing disk errors..." screen. 2) Download , from Microsoft, installation media, made a bootable USB to get to the Troubleshoot options which are- Repair start: when I choose this, nothing happends either, same repairing disk errors screen again- Try to recover to a previous state: nothing happens even thou I have available recovery points, the computer freezes and nothins happens.(In case i'm not making myself clear, I took these 2 Microsoft solutions from this post:http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_10-update/windows-10-stuck-on-repairing-dis... ) Any other ideas? I'm desperate. Thanks!

I dropped my laptop yesterday , and when I turned it back on, it restarted immediately.  It was still running when I dropped it.  After it restarted, it showed a back screen saying "Repairing disk errors. This might take more than an hour to complete."  I left it overnight, and it's still been showing that screen.  Is my computer still salvageable?

A:Laptop stuck on "repairing disk errors"

 It depends on what you mean by salvageable.  Sound like at a minimum your hard drive will need to be replaced.  You might be able to pull data off of the drive, but I don't think you'll be running Windows from it.

Before I start this happened after updating the motherboard BIOS from version 1.4 to 1.7, I went to 1.6 after just in case the latest BIOS had a bug

I've been stuck on the startup repair for almost 5 hours saying that it's repairing my hard drive or whatever (i forget exactly what it said), I first booted linux to check the SMART data on the HDD (i now know that I can do it with HBCD too) it came back all fine. I am now running Hirens Boot CD and DRevitalise to scan and repair bad sectors.

System Specs:

i5 3570k @ stock
MSI Z77 GD55 BIOS Version 1.6
8GB Kingston HyperX 1600mhz
Running HD4000 graphics
500GB Blue WD HDD

I do have a DxDiag on the desktop of the pc in question which I could get if needed (to tired to do

Edit: Reinstalling is not an option I will consider unless there is nothing else that I can do.

Edit: Turns out there is a tool from WD for HDD testing, am running that now instead if the last one.

A:Stuck on startup repair screen saying repairing hard drive

Test ran with no errors shown, SMART data says drive is OK.

EDIT: I have also tried booting in safe mode, goes straight to the same screen. (should have mentioned I tried this first)
