Windows 7: blank screen on reboot for Check Disk task

blank screen on reboot for Check Disk task

I want to run Check Disk on my C: drive (Windows 7,32). Each time I try to set it up I get a warning message that I cannot check this drive while in use and I must schedule this task upon reboot. When I do the reboot my computer looks as if it is starting normally but once the Toshiba splash screen closes I am left with a black screen... no cursor, no dialog, nothing. And all function is frozen. Is this what I am supposed to see (or not see)? After waiting a few minutes I assumed that I had a crash so I unplugged the computer. I managed to reboot with a recovery disk and restored from a disk image.

My question is about how the Check Disk should be working. If I had waited long enough, would the boot have continued after the task had completed? Was I just impatient? Please educate me.

If you have any confusion about your HDD's health, you may try Seatools which works on almost all HDDs:
  • Seatool for dos: SeaTools | Seagate download
    Burn it in a blank cd. boot from the CD, click on "Accept", wait for it to finish detecting the drives, then in the upper left corner select "Basic Tests", then select "Long Test" and let it run.

Normally check disk would reboot and go to the starting windows logo and you should only wait for about 3 minutes to see a % to come up. But if that is not working. You can use the tool that arc suggested, as I would trust it is a good tool coming from Arc.
