Windows 7: How do i run a check on my processor/hard drive etc.

How do i run a check on my processor/hard drive etc.

I recently dropped my laptop and ever since i got errors and had problems booting my computer. So i reinstalled windows 7 and everything seems to work except I'm having trouble with the performance of my pc. It randomly runs really slow and every time i restart it the check disc starts to run and i have to bypass it. I already ran it a couple times and yet it still continues to run every time i reboot it. I was just wondering if there is any way to check if my processor/hard drive is working properly.

Welcome to the forum
If you only want to check your computer, download the (SIW) system information for windows from this site:

SIW | System Information for Windows by Gabriel Topala

Good luck.

It sounds like your drive is damaged, don't stop check disc from running.
If you have any important data you want to keep, back it up immediately.

You can run chkdsk from a command prompt or by looking at the properties of the drive (right click in explorer view) select the tools tab and then check now, However as it's the boot drive it will have to close down and restart to do the check before booting.
Might as well let it run anyway. The tool is a repair tool incidentally so if the system runs it, there is damage suspected.

This tool can check for HDD errors and try and fix them. | Seagate. It should work for all drives, not just seagate ones

Check dsk problems on external hard drive
When I try to do a back up, I can't and the error message says to run check disk. So I am trying to do just that. I have tried twice from the C: and once from the tools section of the properties menu. Each time it stops at the same file and will not continue. What can I do? Thanks. Sue
