Check disk consistency after power failure, freezes

Q: Check disk consistency after power failure, freezes

My power went out for ten seconds yesterday, and when my desktop computer re-booted, I got a message saying drive D (hard drive) had to be checked for disk consistency. It passes the test and the desktop appears. Then the whole computer freezes. Does anyone know how to resolve this issue? Once the desktop appears, the whole computer freezes so I can't access anything.....

Preferred Solution: Check disk consistency after power failure, freezes

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.)

A: Check disk consistency after power failure, freezes

I suggest trying to boot into safe mode.

If successful, then initiate a chkdsk /r on the boot drive.

Start/Run...type chkdsk /r (with space between k and /) and hit Enter.

Type Y in response to onscreen message and hit Enter.

Reboot the system. The chkdsk /r will run before the system boots to the desktop. After the chkdsk /r has completed, the system will boot into XP automatically.

Recently, when I've started my computer, I get a blue screen which indicates that one of my disks needs to be checked for consistency. I allow the check to run, everything seems to be fine and the computer then boots up as usual. The blue screen doesn't appear every time but has increased in frequency.

The computer is four and a half years old and the OS is Windows XP Home. I'm wondering if it's 'old age' that's causing the blue screen/disk check to occur or could it be something else? I've included a current HijackThis report - any advice will be appreciated.

Now here is what I have tried so far:

- Reset CMOS (by placing the jumper in the CLR_CMOS mode for about 30 secs)
- Unplugged Video card, HDD cables
- Switched RAM around
- tried booting a Win XP cd
- taking out the lithium battery and placing it in again.

I would appreciate any help from you guys.

Thanks in advance.

Make sure your BIOS is set to boot from your optical drive first.

Or you have a SATA hard drive and controller and are trying to boot from an unpartitioned drive on a controller that you haven't provided a driver for.

Hello!

So I recently installed Windows 7 Home Premium on an Acer Aspire 5349. I've been having a bunch of issues with it since the install.

Firstly, When I boot, it takes me to the "Disk Check" screen and tells me that one of my disks needs to be checked for consistency. However, the disk in question isn't something like "C:" or "D:" it's "\\?\volume{c4afec15-cb60-11e4-9583-806e6f6e6963}". The disk check also automatically cancels. It doesn't prompt me with the usual " Press any button to stop the disk check" option, just straight to " Disk check has been cancelled"

When I eventually get to the desktop, I get the screen " Windows detected a hard disk problem ". I look at the details and I'm told that my C:\ drive has been reporting failures. When I check the status of the disk via the Disk Management tool I'm told that all my partitions are healthy.

When I actually use the laptop, it's very slow and frequently freezes. It takes a while to catch back up and sometimes these freezes lead to a BSOD. The BSOD message was KERNEL_DATA_INPAGE_ERROR. I checked the event viewer and it also seemed that before certain crashes I would have driver controller error on an IDE Port. I've attached a picture of the disk check screen, event viewer, and memory dump. I apologize about the quality of the pictures, I couldn't screenshot the images on the actual laptop as it was freezing and crashing too often.

So, Ive noticed that my computer started freezing while playing a game on my computer and I couldnt figure out the reason.
I ran a System Diagnostic and apparently some Disk checks failed, ie. SMART predict failure check and Logical Disk Dirty Bit Check.

Could this be the reason the game is freezing, and is there any way to fix these problems?

Thanks!!
 

A:Disk Check failure

Boot from the DVD and open a command window. Type:

chkdsk C: /b

It will take a while to run. It will retest any bad clusters that may be there and remove them from the bad cluster file if they work properly.

If I were you, I would turn off the SMART in the BIOS before running chkdsk so that only chkdsk is determining the drive's health independent of any other information. Though it doesn't happen often, SMART can be in error, too.

If you still have bad clusters listed in the results of chkdsk, you need a new drive.

http://www.kellys-korner-xp.com/xp_c.htm#cd

And have you tried running a disk diagnostic tool for the hard drive from the manufacturer's site?

I believe Windows does a quick check to see if the drive is "dirty" and runs chkdsk if it thinks it is. You may see some entires for this in the Eventvwr.msc logs

Also if you are using a RAID controller, there may be some advanced issues witth this -- and perhaps a move to the hardware forum would be in order.

I had to hold my power button for 5 seconds to kill the computer.

So I tried to use the computer again and after about 5 minutes, she locked up again.
I ran CCleaner and Combofix several times...problem still existed.
I did a system restore to a month prior and the problem still existed.
Since these things didn't work, I was thinking that the problem was most likely a hardware issue.

So I went on yahoo and searched for this problem to hopefully to get some potential solutions.

A:LOCKING UP & NTFS Consistency Check

HI .
 
Whenever disk consistency checks occur...it's usually a signal that the user needs to run the chkdsk /r command, after the system finally boots to the desktop.  The "consistency check" doesn't necessarily alleviate the problem that created it, while the chkdsk /r command results in a more thorough check of the file system.  It's important to remember that...although Windows calls it a "disk check", it really is a check of the NTFS file system, file content...it is not a check of the hard drive for functional hard drive problems.
 
Hard drive problems may lie as the root cause of the check being triggered, but that must be dealt with in a different manner.
 
No "consistency check" or running of the chkdsk /r command can overcome every problem.  In addition to not being able to overcome hard drive functional problems...neither can necessarily overcome a damaged NTFS file system and various other items.  In most cases, if Windows comes across something that chkdsk /r cannot overcome (but can diagnose), it will let the user know by indicating onscreen that such has happened.
 
Since you have a Dell...you really do have two partitions.  Windows calls each partition a "drive", something that annoys me but that's just the way that Windows is .  Dell installs a small partition at the beginning of the hard drive, which may relate to restoring the system to factory defaults, contain the boot files, and other things that I am unfa...

A:Check Disk Freezes

The chkdsk that runs because of a perceived problem...at boot...does not perform a complete check.My analogy would be that it attempts to address the wound...by putting a bandage on it.Chkdsk is activated because there is either a perceived problem with the file system (NTFS) or the hard drive. The 3-stage chkdsk that runs can overcome some of these situations, but not all.When this chkdsk at boot occurs on my systems, I interpret that as a message that I need to run the chkdsk /r command, which is a 5-stage process and includes efforts to recover data from bad sectors on the hard drive (which is not done when the automatic 3-stage chkdsk runs).If that doesn't solve the problem, then I do a diagnostic (long/extended test) on the hard drive, using the hard drive manufacturer's tool for doing such.If you have a Microsoft XP CD, then you can run chkdsk /r on a system that won't boot...from the Recovery Console of the XP CD.How to use CHKDSK in the XP Recovery Console - http://pirules3.14.googlepages.com/recovery_console_chkdsk If you don't have a MS XP CD, then you can download the Recovery Console and run the chkdsk /r command from there.Download Recovery Console, Bootable ISO - http://www.webtree.ca/windowsxp/repair_xp.htm.

It's been stuck on 7 percent for about an hour now, and I don't know whether it's frozen or what's going on. After doing some research and finding that it has something to do with the hard drive chucking a wobbly, I decided not to touch it in case my drive gets wiped or I screw something up. Now, I don't know what to do. I kind of have some important files on there which aren't backed up (I'm really, really stupid, I know), but the computer is only just over a year old... can there really be something wrong with it already?
What should I do? Keep in mind that I don't know all that much about computers... Any help would be greatly appreciated, and I really would like to avoid losing all of my files.

A:Windows 7 freezes on check disk

1) It'll keep asking until you let it run to completion. (Your hard drive is marked "dirty". Checkdist will mark it "clean" on successful completion.) 
 
2) Checkdisk can take days (the longest I've ever seen was a little over 7 days - on a 30GB drive - but I've heard of it taking longer.) It can look "frozen" for hours at a time. That's normal on a dying drive. 
 
3) You unmarked the dirty bit. The drive is still dirty, Windows just doesn't know it. Your friend is right. One day the drive will just hard crash and you'll have to replace it. I hope all your important files are backed up. 
 
4) Sleeping just works the drive harder (all of RAM has to be saved to sleep, then reread to wake up). It just isn't accessing the system area of the drive, which is probably where the problem is. Let Checkdisk complete and, if it's a minor problem, it'll be fixed. (I'd still clone the drive, "government format" it, toss it and replace it.

Hi Forum,

When i run a scheduled disk check on a drive via restart, it appears to run smoothly, checking the 3 various stages. Once complete it lists the number of files in indexes, sectors etc concerning that hard drive. From this point onwards nothing happens. Rather than returning to windows it just freezes at this stage, meaning i have to forcefully restart the computer by holding the power button. When it restarts it gives me the option to cancel and i do so (before it didn't).

This may seem like a rather mild issue, but recently i had this exact same problem with a larger hard drive which ended up with a corrupt MFT because the checkdisc froze. I do not wish the same thing to happen to this drive When i then restart the computer it tries to perform the check disk again with the same result. Any ideas on what may be causing this problem? Can i cancel the check disk alltogether?

Thanks

A:Check Disk freezes after completion?

What kind of drive is this? Also, there is usually 5 stages total for Chkdsk before it's completed, and the 4th/5th ones only occur with the /R switch enabled, which is the same as checking the "Scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors" option. This is usually a very thorough process and it may appear to freeze at first. It is definitely not recommended you restart the PC during one of those last 2 steps, otherwise you can be rather sure there will be data corruption.

You can try chkdsk without using the "bad sectors" option and see if the problem persists. If not, then there may be issues with the hd controller or the hd itself that's preventing the 4th and 5th stages from running properly.

Hi all,

I am having this problem well since i bought my pc.

The problem is that it freezes for a few moments and then it just continues to work like it all ok again.

It happens suddenly and without warnings. When i play heavy video games it freezes it just crashes the video game and outputs a windows error massage, massages are different contain mainly that it crashed.

When i re install Windows it works fine for a couple of weeks, but then it starts again. The problems start when i start losing system files, like it deletes icons of cmd, paint and other windows programs in explorer. It runs DiskCheck ups when i start windows.

Now i thought it was at first HDD, and 2 years ago the first one that i had died, it was WD 750gb cant remember model name sorry, but it was under warranty so i replaced it and it worked fine for some time but it all started again.

So many people told me to buy Seagate Baracuda cuz WD suck, so i did and it was ok for a year but it starred again.
Now i am think it may it be to the power supply or motherboard...

I don't know what to do, it drives me crazy, cuz i really need my pc to work properly because i need it for my job and collage.

(i bough it in other country so cant reach their tech supp and warranty expired).

Hi!
I recently have a problem with my laptop.
After sometime (e.g. 2 hours), everything works extremely slowly.
For example it takes 3 or 4 minutes just to open Windows Explorer and 10-20 minutes for the computer to shutdown (sometimes it doesn't even shutdown).
When I restart my computer, a consistency check is performed almost every time.
I have no idea what may be wrong, so could anyone give me some advice?

Thanks in advance!

Hi Eatos and welcome to SF,

You could run SFC to check the integrity of all Windows 7 system files:

Right click cmd at top and Run as Administrator
Type SFC /scannow at the prompt

Also please Run chkdsk /f/r in an elevated command prompt.

Suddenly, when powering-up my PC using Windows XP, a blue screen appears saying that it must make a disk check for consistency. What is this? Why did this happen out-of-the-blue? I had to re-boot everything and then the cursor froze in the middle of the screen so I had to power-off and then the blue screen appeared again and did another disk consistency check. The third time, I finally got on-line. What's going on?
 

A:Disk Consistency?

When a computer is shut down abnormally (other than shutdown or restart) like by forcing it (power-off ), windows xp will check for disk consistency, to check that there are no errors on the disk.

If it is shut down currectly (through windows) it won't display the blue screen asking to scan the disk.

Hi Everyone,

I'm hoping to get some help. I had a power outage while my WD Elements 1.5 TB Hard drive was on. I wasn't accessing it but apparently that was enough.

I had a lot of important data on it but losing hope after unsuccessful attempts to use PhotoRec to get items off it.

It doesn't show as accessible in MyComputer but is detected. I've included what it shows under the "Manage" view of the drive.

I've also tried MiniTool Partition but it doesn't seem to be able to fix the partition. I've also tried Partition Bad Disk and it just shows the whole 1.5 TB drive as one bad block. It won't let me fix it either.

Does anyone have any other bits of advice? I'm at a loss as what to do. It seems the data is not recoverable. I can't figure out how to get it to show or even how to use it again.

Please see attachments.

I'm grateful for any ideas/help please. Thank you.

What a mess...

I came to my PC this morning only to find it restarting after the BIOS continuously. I peeked in the case and the DRAM LED was lit on my ASUS mb. I pulled one of the memory sticks out, restarted, and it booted right into windows (I'm running win 7 x64 ultimate). I wanted to run memtest86 to check the rest of my memory, so I booted that from a flash drive, test was OK. When I booted from the flash drive, it changed my boot order and disabled my RAID1 for some reason, so it booted to one of the RAID drives (except now it wasn't in raid, it was just an IDE drive). When it got into Windows it did all the 'installing new hardware' stuff on my hard drives. But it was running fine. I knew what happened, so I shut down, went into the BIOS and put the RAID back on, and booted back into Windows. It booted fine, except that there was a red X on my internet connection icon in the tray (even though I could get to web sites just fine). Network control center said the "dependency service or group failed to start". A few seconds later, a msg pops up saying the firewall is off and should be turned on. It ran stable at this point, had it on for about an hour.

Then to fix the red X thing, I read that maybe I should try a check disk. So i went to do it in windows on my C drive and it said I couldn't do it while the drive is active or whatever, so it would schedule it for the next startup. Sure enough it ran, found some problems, and finished. Now when it gets into wi... Read more

All of the sudden my laptop has this black screen with the above message. It also tells me to backup the content immediately and run the Hard Disk test in System Diagnostics. First how can I back up anything since I cannot get past the black screen? Second when I run the Hard Disk test (quick or extensive), it tells me Smart check and Short DST not available.  I am not an expert in computers, but when I bought this back in early 2013 the first thing I did was make a recovery disk, it only did the Repair disc and no others. Since it was newer than the one I had before that made 5, I thought is all I needed, but when I insert it does not work.  This is running Windows 7, not really sure if is a 32 or 64 bit sorry. It is an i7 and has an SSD. I went all out on this computer when I bought since I detest Windows 8. Spent a little over $1100.00, so I would appreciate any help.      

A:"SMART hard disk check has detected an imminent failure"

Hi,  Thank you for posting your concern on the Support Forums and sorry about the issue you are having. F2 Test on HDD giving error message ? SMART Check not installed Short DST not installed means that the HDD is not getting detected by the computer you might want to go to BIOS by tapping F10 and check if you see HDD listed. If not then yes HDD is not getting detected at all by the unit. I?m not sure how comfortable you are tearing down the unit to reseat the parts. But if you are, you might want to reseat the HDD, if that works well and good, if not nothing much can be done as either the HDD or the cable connecting the HDD to the Motherboard has gone bad, or I?m sorry you mentioned its SSD so it brings us down to replacing the SSD itself. The recovery media is not going to work as the Hardware component on which the recovery media would install the operating system itself is not getting detected on the unit.  Please write us back in case you would need any further assistance we would be happy to help. Or if the unit is in warranty call HP Tech Support at 1-800-474-6836, they will guide you further. To check the warranty status here use this link-http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/weInput?cc=us&lc=en.Although I work for HP but I'm speaking for myself. Please click ?Accept as Solution? if you feel my post solved your issue, it will help others find the solution.

A:no bootable disk/media test failure, check cable

Your HP notebook is not booting from the Windows DVD because the boot list is wrong.

In the BIOS Setup Boot Order list, move Internal CD/DVD ROM drive to the top, and move the Notebook Hard Drive to second place in the list. Save & Exit. Your notebook should now boot from the Windows 7 DVD.

You should see "Press any key" when the DVD is initially detected, so press any key to continue booting from it.

Don't forget to enter the correct Product Key - - the one that should be printed on a label on the underside of the HP notebook.

Dear all,

I hope you can help. I have an issue with my PC which I think is virus and/or spyware related.

My issue is basically that my PC freezes randomly or during a virus scan. I have used McAfee before and during the scan 9/10 times my PC froze. I spoke to their support and they suggested I had a viruse but were pretty useless in helping me diagnose the virus (MCafee never actually found a virus in Safe Mode or normal mode.)

I then decided to remove McAfee thinking it may be an issue with their software and installed AVG Trial version. I am still having the same issue. I have run both in Safe mode and not found any problems. I have run CCleaner and resolved any issues it found.

I also find that my pc will crash (freeze) at random points (without running a virus scanner) I also tried running check disk which also caused a crash.

I hope someone can help diagnose the issue as it is driving me crazy.

I run Windows Vista on a Dell Studio XPS. I have all the latest updates for Vista and the virus software.

Hi there,

So i recently added ram to my computer, this is DDR2 RAM, so i took out 2 old sticks that were 1 gig each and put in two 2 gig sticks. Therefore all 4 of my slots are full and i have 6Gigs in total. When i tried to start up my computer i pressed F1 to save the new memory amount (This amount was indeed correct), and my computer rebooted but then stopped at a disk check. I allowed it to run the disk check for about 10-15 seconds. In this short amount of time it was displaying a bunch of corrupted files and attempting to resolve them i am guessing, but suddenly my computer restarted around 5 times in a row in 5-10 second intervals then i got the error saying:

A:Computer freezes after disk check is complete.

I suggest that you remove "utilities" such as the one you named...completely and forever from your system.After doing that, I suggest that you run the chkdsk /r command after removing this program...and possibly follow up with running the sfc /scannow command.Bleeping Computer DOES NOT recommend the use of registry cleaners/optimizers for several reasons: Registry cleaners are extremely powerful applications that can damage the registry by using aggressive cleaning routines and cause your computer to become unbootable.

The Windows registry is a central repository (database) for storing configuration data, user settings and machine-dependent settings, and options for the operating system. It contains information and settings for all hardware, software, users, and preferences. Whenever a user makes changes to settings, file associations, system policies, or installed software, the changes are reflected and stored in this repository. The registry is a crucial component because it is where Windows "remembers" all this information, how it works together, how Windows boots the system and what files it uses when it does. The registry is also a vulnerable subsystem, in that relatively small changes done incorrectly can render the system inoperable. For a more detailed explanation, read Understanding The Registry.
Not all registry cleaners are created equal. There are a number of them available but they do not all work entirely the same way. Each vendor uses ... Read more

I found two corrupt files in the dllcache which froze my computer if I so much as right clicked on them.

A:Defragmenting/Disk Check freezes computer

It is important that you or whoever take care that there is enough free space on hard disk.
Also is it important that you clear the temp folder and temp Internet folder from time to time.
When the drive is full or the cache from the hd is full than get you this sort things.
You told that you have 25 percent free, well 25 percent is not so much for Windows Xp.
My advice in this: Delete files what you don't use anymore and clean the Windows Temp folder and Internet temp folder, you will see that your problem is solved.
When you have done, than have you also more cache memory.
When you use your Computer than is it not only the Ram what Windows uses, but also the hard disk cache.
The files what the processor can not place in the Ram, set the processor first in the processor, what the processor can not store in his l2 cache, set it in the cache on the hard disk.
It is also smart that you maintenance you hard disk from time to time.

A:Disk needs to be checked for consistency

If you can boot into Windows and have an Internet connection download startupcpl from MIke Lin's page and install it. This will give you a new icon in your control panel named 'Startup'. Run it and go to the RunOnce tab. You should see the link. Delete it and reboot.

The only other way to do this would be run\regedit and do a search for 'Runonce' and delete the entry from there.

hello

a few days ago i noticed a few issues with my pc:

-random audio clips of ads/sounds/music

-disk check/error-checking incompletion
"windows was unable to complete the disk check."

-disk check on start-up scheduled through command prompt unable to scan
"The type of the filesystem is RAW.
AUTOCHK is not available for RAW drives."
(file types for all drives listed as NTFS)

i've spent 3 days doing numerous scans and searching through google trying to fix these problems myself and haven't had much luck. i've cleared the history, cookies, temporary internet files, etc.. i've cleaned the registry. the issues still remain even after cleansing infected files with antivirus. everything else runs fine. my computer is fairly new. 2 years old. never had any problems up until now. please, i need some help with this so i can get back to my work. i'm running microsoft windows xp home edition service pack 2 but i do not have a windows disc or boot disc at the moment.



here's a list of the antivirus/spyware/adware/malware i've used and their progress:

PC freezes mostly while running games with dramatically increasing frequency as I turn up the graphic settings, but has frozen with only chrome and discord running. It is a hard freeze with an automatic shutdown after ~5 minutes. It has been an issue for over a year but the frequency has gone from once in a blue moon to I cant play a full game of R6:Siege on Maximum settings without crashing. Cleaning dust seemed to reduce the problem in the past but there is not anything more I can seem to clean now which leads me to believe it is a hardware related issue.
 
I have replaced the GPU, changed from having W7 Pro installed on HDD to having a new W10 Pro on a less new SSD. I have also tried with only the SSD connected and it still froze. Just about everything in here but the new GPU, SSD and a couple sticks of RAM is from late 2011 but I have just dusted it as much as I could while putting everything in a brand new case (V71). Airflow seems good (6 case fans is nice) and I replaced the factory CPU heatsink with a Corsair H80i v2. Replaced my GPU with a 1070 but that seems to have made things worse, I assume mostly because I'm able to play above the absolute minimum now.
