none
usn journal verification completed, then hangs

    Question

  • I have a Windows 7 box where the hard drive appears to have crashed.  I removed the drive and connected it to another Windows 7 box and ran chkdsk with both (at different times) the /f and /c switches.  Both times it gets to the Usn Journal verification completed (having reported no errors) but then hangs.  It will hang for hours until I finally close down the command prompt.  Any ideas?  I've searched most help areas and can't seem to find a reason as to why this is happening.  I'll get a new drive if this is bad, but if not.....

    Thanks for your help....

    Please help collect the Check Disk log:

     

    Please go to Event Viewer -> Windows Logs -> Application, it should be under the winlogon entry, then look for Wininit.

  • Seems like Chkdsk encountered an bad sector, which cannot be handled by the program.

     

    Try to check the Hard Drive with diagnostic utility from your Hard Drive Vendor website.

  • Same thing is happening to me, but haven't taken the hard drive out to independently test it.  I was getting a BOOTMGR is missing error.  I was able to get the Startup Repair started and it wasn't successful.  I thought the first time I ran it said it replaced the file.  But now I'm not so sure.  It says it can't replace the file.  Now when I start the computer and select start normally, it goes into Chkdsk mode and hangs. Suggestions?

    Thanks

    Tim
