Hit F8 once every second right after starting the PC

This gets you into the DOS looking screen with safe mode and other options, select Repair
Recovery manager starts
Select Advanced Options
Select computer checkup
Select command prompt
CMD prompt starts in X:
Enter C: to change to the C drive
Enter chkdsk /f
When asked to force a dismount select Y
Check disk should now start automatically.
Exit then boot "


Thank you for your support.



This would be worth a try to see if it will run for you.

I also have this, did a chkdsk c:, and it reported error in bitmap mft. Then tried chkdsk /f /r C:
but on reboot the chkdsk is just cancelled.

Tried the msconfig secure boot option, and in safe mode but nothing seems to work.

Windows 7 Hope Premium 64bit

Hi. I have a similar problem. I currently have an HP Pavillion dv5. I understand that most of these issues are with HP notebooks. I had partitioned my hard drive poorly, thus it was misaligned. since my HDD is using Advanced Format, I didn't want there to be any drop in performance, so I aligned it using Paragon Alignment Tool Special Edition 2.0. long story short, my computer was working fine after the alignment for a few days till I noticed that my HP_TOOLS folder only had a single .txt file in it, and I believe its supposed to contain more like a sys_diags file or something like that.

Then, I noticed that my Control Panel when I open it, doesn't have the dialog box on the left hand side with the blue background listing all the options. I put screen shots of the control panel when I first open it, then the control panel when click one of the options. I could have swore that the light blue part on the left was there when I first open control panel. This isn't a big deal since I can still access all my options, but maybe cause for concern? or maybe my mind is just playing tricks on me.

About 3 days after I had aligned my hard drive, I close my laptop lid, and it hibernated or suspended. then, when I opened it again a few minutes later, it had restarted and went into that START WINDOWS NORMALLY black screen option. I did the same overnight and in the morning, it resumed from hibernate/suspend fine so i thought nothing of it. then later that day, I shut my laptop lid and then a few minutes later, opened it up again and it had restarted again! I was pretty sure that it hadn't happened in the days previous since I shut my laptop lid quite frequently. So, very much similar to the OP, I go into Disk Management and check the hard drive for errors, but it says it needs to schedule a scan on boot up. and it scans but cancels right away. I did this also for my HP_TOOLS drive, but it asked me to dismount it first. then when i say cancel, it says that the drive needs to be scheduled for a check on bootup. my RECOVERY partition scanned just fine though.

Any Disk Doctors out there? Anyone experience these problems? are all these symptoms related? Do i need to do a re-install? and if so, is it guaranteed that these things will go away? I would really appreciate someone's help! Thank you!

That worked for me too. Thanks for sharing Angelis!

I don't know if it's a bypass solution though or a correct one.

I faced similar error during disk check. I had an external keyboard connected thru USB which I unplugged and attempted again. It worked for me. Disk check completed and no issues found. I would recommend unplugging any external devices, disks, remove any CD's then give a try. Cheers
