Windows 7: Unable to perform disk check.

Unable to perform disk check.

Though it was likely foolish of me to keep putting it off I can no longer run a disk check. The 10 second timer stops itself at 10 and proceeds to the log in screen. Not sure if it's important but my "l" key is broken and I was told that that key being broken may be counting as the "press any key to skip dick check". If that is the issue is there any way around it? And if that isn't it then why won't my disk check continue?

That broken key may be the issue; not sure.

Try another keyboard.
