  • Have u tried sfc/scanow ? using a command prompt run as administrator?

    what is the error message you are encountering..????

    chkdsk  is not recognized as an internal or external command

    ??

    if something like this this could be due to environment path error..

    try to use

    cd \windows\system32

    then type chkdsk

    By installing JDK windows path could be changed.. you can revert it by environment variables system path..

  • First, it not called DOS mode.  The correct term is Command Line--yes, there is a large difference between the two.

    Second, what is your error?  You can't run chkdsk.  Are you receiving an error?  Is the Command Prompt not responding?  Any messages in the Event Log?  Etc.

    Need more information.
