Windows 7: Disk check freezing on file

Disk check freezing on file

Hello, I have a problem when I do disk checks on my Laptop, it gets to 59% complete but after that it freezes, I know it's frozen as I left it for 5 hours scanning the 1 file and it didn't move up. I have tried booting it with a Ubuntu 11.1 Disc, although it runs it, I can't seem to find an option to schedule a disk check in the home directory. I'm not really into computers, so if anyone could help it would be greatly appreciated. (I don't know if it's a file problem or a disk error) :)

Check for ONE File (!) if NTFS structure + hard disk sectors ok?
Obviously the user can check the consistency of a FULL, whole NTFS hard disk by performing a "chkdsk" command and run in addition one of the well known tools (like MiniTool Partition Wizard) a surface test to check whether all sectors of a hard disk are ok. But what if I don't want to check the...

Disk check utility changed file names, now I got problems.
I periodically get notices from Win7 that I need to run the disk check utility. This is usually after a BSOD. These events have been occurring from the day I bought this laptop and I have posted them here in the past. This time, the disk check utility changed names on at least 12 files. I don't...

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.

Disk Check freezing - What to do?
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,...
