Windows 7: CHKDSK running 2 days with no screen or cursor

CHKDSK running 2 days with no screen or cursor

About 30 seconds after starting chkdsk my screen went blank with no cursor. Appears the monitor is not getting a signal at all because the power light is blinking. Is there anyway at all to get monitor re-activated without powering cpu off? I have no idea of the progress of CHKDSK. I do know it is running because the drive light is blinking intermittently. For the first four hours it was almost solid, but since then it just blinks as I stated above. I would love to just power off the computer and restart, but from everything I've read that would be the last thing I should do. Any help welcome...

chkdsk doesn't run for 2 days under any working condition so I would power off then wait a minute and power on again.

You are a very patient person for sure. There is no way I would wait that long for anything computer related.

Hello and welcome uncleoat mate Ztruker has said mate that is an eternity for chkdsk.
I would try reseating the GPU and also all the power cables to it and the cables to the monitor. Now the monitor any chance of trying one that you know works?

If you do power off try hitting safe mode and see what happens.

After CHKDSK, black screen with cursor
After I came back to logon after turning my computer on it was going through a CHKDSK. Knowing it hadn't been done in a while I let go thinking it would be done in about 30 minutes. I was wrong and when I came back it was defaulting security permissions. This took upwards of a day and when it...

Windows not booting. Running chkdsk from DVD taking days.
Hi, I'm currently having problems getting Windows started on a laptop. Booting up gets to the point where it says "Windows loading files" before it bails with an error 0xc00000e9. I tried using startup repair from a Windows DVD but that seemed to just get stuck so I've now jumped into a cmd and run...

Windows 7 running extremely slowly/Black screen with movable cursor
Hello, I've been running Windows 7 for a year now with no problems, but a few days ago my laptop froze and the only way to turn it off was to hold down the power button. When I turned it back on, it began to run extremely slowly. The Windows logo appears as normal, but hangs around for a long...
