Try CHKDSK /F or /R every once in a while!

Try CHKDSK /F or /R every once in a while, especially if your computer is consistently freezing!


CHKDSK is a Command Prompt that you can use when your computer isn't being itself(freezing, trouble logging in, slow, cant open certain files...etc)!

CHKDSK is practically checking the PHYSICAL STRUCTURE of your Hard Disk. It does what The old  SCANDISK used to do for Windows 95,98,ME!

It checks for bad clusters, sectors, and if its really bad it might mainly mean to replace old hard drive with new! Do it once in a while and it might help more than you think!

This Command is olso very familiar to FSCK in Linux .

  • Click Start, then type CMD in the Search box
  • Right click the cmd.exe, and then click Run as Administrator, if you get asked for password that would be the same password that you would have set to use to log on to Windows
  • At the command prompt, type CHKDSK /F and press Enter then restart your computer and check for errors when its finished the computer will reboot back to windows
