Size:  9.1 KBCannot check (C:) Drive but It says I need to do that to restore (I'm trying to restore however it say"The Disk OS (C:) has errors. Window has detected file system(Image above) corruption to OS (C:) You must check the disk for errors before it can be restored.)
And I do the check disk button but It says you cannot check while (C:) is in use.

Note: I can't disk check due to the (C:) Error, I can't even start up unless I do Safe Mode.

PS: It's a Dell, With Windows 7.

Hello and welcome Riuuiu that last message youy should just reboot the machinew and let it run the disk check.

If you can get safe mode then you type cmd in Start right click the small blue window > Run as admin > type in the little black and white screen sfc /scannow and hit enter.

(That is a space between sfc and the /scannow)

Another method which will show you the screen shots. Tutorial search - Windows 7 Forums

Hello, Thanks for that I did it that. however I can't even chkdsk it says there is a Error on (C:) when it attempts to check it and requests I do system restore, but system restore doesn't work and tells me I need to chkdsk first (This is when I try to boot the pc the normal way.)

Select "repair your computer" instead of "safe mode"


In the recovery options select command prompt




Then type:
Code:
dir c:
dir d:
dir e:
What's the C drive (it is not always called C in recovery environment!)

Code:
chkdsk/f  c:
chkdsk/f d:
chkdsk/f e:

Well just go to Start type cmd > right click > run as admin and when you get the black and white window type sfc /scannow - there is a space between the sfc and the /scannow.

See my pic (mine is blue / white out of choice)
