    I'm going through the recommended procedures, but the check disk will not run. After rebooting the PC starts up normally, then the blue screen with check disk appears for a second or two but is to quick to read what it it says. I also tried to run by going to Start>Run>OK, but the result is the same as above.
    What can I do to rectify this problem? Thank you

    I had this problem around eighteen months ago and located the problem as caused by "Kaspersky AntiVirus" software. Deleting the software didn't work, I had to restore back to an image made before installing Kaspersky AntiVirus.

    Don't know if this will be of assistance to you but mentioned it just on the off chance.

    I can confirm the same, except I did not have to delete Kaspersky (KIS) to get CHKDSK to work. I merely had to shut down KIS (indicate it should only restart on user demand - not on reboot). Then CHKDSK worked when I rebooted by machine. Strange but true.
