Windows 7: How do you know when chkdsk /r is done from a restart?

How do you know when chkdsk /r is done from a restart?

I ran the chkdsk /r upon next reboot.
The DOS screen was displayed and running.
I stopped watching the screen, and hours later upon checking, the screen is not displaying anything.
The machine is a laptop hooked up to a docking station.
I checked the monitor connections, they keep going to powersave, I undocked the laptop and the display there will not show anything either.
The battery and wifi lights are steadily flashing.

If it ran, you should be able to find the results here:

Check Disk (chkdsk) - Read Event Viewer Log

Start/Control Panel/Administrative Tools/Event Viewer and open Windows logs in left pane. Double-click "Application". Look for "wininit" in the source column in the right pane for the time chkdsk was run. Double click that row to bring up details.

Yes, try to reboot. If that doesn't work or it won't reboot, you're going to have to power it off by pressing and holding the power button until it turns off. Wait 10 seconds or so then power it back on.
