Impossible to do chkdsk /f (Or the GUI equivalent) on C: on Lenovo T430 2347A31.

It is impossible to do chkdsk /f (Or the GUI equivalent) on C: on Lenovo my T430 2347A31.

C: is the system drive so I am told a check has to be scheduled for the next reboot.

But at the next reboot I see the message that the chkdsk is about to start and to press any key to abort chkdsk but it always acts like a key was pressed even though no key was pressed, and the chkdsk is always aborted.

 

Please can I have some proper help with this not just stupid blind deinal that Lenovo could ever make such a mistake.

 

The PC is running the original WIndows 7 Pro 64 bit.

What did you do before doing the CHKDSK?

Er, just before the chkdsk runs the PC was starting to REBOOT.

 

In fact it only does the very first bit of a reboot and, as far I know, nothing at all that I have any control over has happened at this stage of the boot process.

Dear friend,

 

I recommend you to back all your files up in case it fails of you have to 'wipe the drive clean' to do this. 

 

Follow the steps:

1. Pull out your battery

2.Wait 5-10 secons

3.Put back the battery (this will erase all processes and will run a clean fresh CHKDSK)

It seems like you're not really understanding.

I have wiped the drive and re-installed Windows 7 several times since I've owned this T430.

It doesn't make any difference to this problem.

One answer: The CHKDSK files are missing or the partition is gone.

Especially you installed Windows 7 several times.

No. IT ACTS LIKE A KEY WAS PRESSED. I EVEN SOMETIMES SEE "ABORTED BY USER" OR SOMETHING SIMILAR FLASH UP.

Lenovo need to fix this int he BIOS or something.

Where do you see aborted by user? In the BIOS or somewhere else?

Re: Impossible to do chkdsk /f (Or the GUI equivalent) on C: on Lenovo T430 2347A31.

Hello Brian,

 

Not sure if this is still happening to you. First off, it is important to determine why check disk (chkdsk) is attempting to run during bootup.

 

There are generally two reasons. 1) You intentionally invoked 'chkdsk c:' or some derivative of that command or 2) the system has detected a disk issue and has flagged your disk as 'dirty'.

 

To see if the disk is flagged as dirty, open an administrative command prompt and type the following

fsutil dirty query c:

This will report back whether the disk has been marked as dirty or not. Now, if you did invoke chkdsk c: or some derivative, this does not set the dirty flag on your disk.

 

If your disk is marked as dirty and you're having problems running chkdsk, I would recommend backing up all your important files as soon as possible, as Windows has detected a problem with the disk and obviously you're experiencing . You may need to run a rescue disk or livecd disk and invoke chkdsk from there to scan the disk for problems.

 

Please let me know what you find out and if you need further help.
