Why do you need to run CHKDSK from the command prompt?

So I assume you are booting from the win 7 dvd and opening a cmd from it? I/O error can mean the HD, the controller, a driver, etc.

can you boot windows in safe mode?

I can open window in safe mode and its an acer aspire notebook no dvd/cd driver.
I tried in none safe mode open window normally but it stays loading and then
screen turns black, no type of images, no words..
I did window repair thats when the error shows up.
I opened window in safe mode did a system revovery, no progress.
Now trying the chkdsk option I read here in this forum.
Btw if I nvr knew about dis site it is great.

Did you right click CMD and run as administrator?
Also you need to put in spaces after chkdsk and C:
Like this chkdsk C: /F

Did you get chkdsk to run?

You will need to boot using your USB. Change the boot order in your bios to look for a USB device to boot with instead of the HD.

Is your USB drive bootable? You cant just copy a Windows 7 disk or .iso file to a USB. Read this for instructions. http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/2432-usb-windows-7-installation-key-drive-create.html

Let Windows format and install on your hard drive.

Before you go reinstalling Win7 you should determine whether or not your disk has errors, unless you want to be doing this all over again in the near future. What was the result of running checkdisk? Did it ever complete successfully?
