Disk Check freezing.

"One of your disks needs to be checked for consistency"

I try skipping it but it won't let me. And what's worse is that it just says "to skip press any key within 1 second" and just stays there adn does nothing. I can't get to my computer.

Why delay the inevitable? Run it, and be done with it, if your throwing warnings like that it might not be too long until they become errors or worse, you will start having BSOD's

Yeah I let it run...it still stays at "press any key within 1 second to skip" and does nothing. I left it like that.

Then what you need to do is force a DSKCHK the instructions are in the link I provided.
I would use the options described in step #8

Generally this warning is caused by an improper shutdown of the OS.

I would also run SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

If you really want to be sure your HDD is okay, you will need to use a diagnostic from the manufacturer of the HDD.

I would of helped you to find it, but you failed to fill out your System Info - See Your System Specs

My computer rebooted while I slept, so I went and checked the Windows Logs for my System. Found out it was KERNEL-Power but that appears to have also taken our router and my brother's computer so I can safely assume something went wonky with the power. However, I did notice a pair of errors,...
