What kind of errors are you looking for? What tools have at your disposal? And most important, why must it be though command line? Certainly a handy tool to have, but if you know better options don't be affraid to use them.
Without any specific symptoms or even a vague idea of what are you tracing that's just a useless question, there is no way to give a reasonable answer, one normally looks at the problem then begins some evaluation of the situation, not just running some canned commands and hope they diagnose or fix everything.

Errors such as registry , cause of crash like even viewer, autoexe viruses and lots of other errors which results in slow down of the system or taking long time to copy a folder of 1 mb to another folder or drive.
If there is no such command , could you please suggest some other windows builtin tool to find those errors and kind of errors i have missed

One thing more my interviewer told me that there is a command line syntax which is use to diagnose the errors found in the system.
Its like once we entered that command it start analysing the system (start scanning )and gives bundle of details about the system errors currently present in the workstation.

Here is a long list of cmd. Of course their are more.

Take a look at this tutorial by Brink.

Run Commands for Windows 7

I personally have never heard of a command that check everything in a system.

Such a command sure could be very handy.

I use wevtutil (Windows Events Command Line Utility) every day to easier check errors and warnings from the event logs. Here's how I use it: Windows Error Reporting - Some General Questions from a Newbie

Maybe this?

Control Panel
Performance Information and Tools
Advanced Tools
Generate a system health report

Not Command Line but interesting.

And the shortcut for that being —

perfmon /report

Still not a real command line though.

I’d be interested in knowing what command line this Interviewer of yours knows, Nouman. Before reading Ztruker’s post, I didn’t know vanilla Windows even had a diagnostic tool accessible through the GUI. One existing for the command line would not be likely—it wouldn’t make any sense—given the absence of Click as an input method, the diagnostic tool'd be very limited in functionality. Simply not worth it to use or even make in the first place.

Do return for the Interviewer’s answer, Nouman. Thanks.
