What is scandisk


every time i boot up

i get a message telling my that windows did not shut down properly press any key to run scandisk

when it gets to the surface scan, half way thru (about 3 bad sectors later) scandisk freezes up and wont respond to keyboard.

also tried executing scandisk by restarting in ms-dos mode and leaving scandisk to run overnight. only to find next morning the scandisk has hung up at the usual place.

advise me pls......

most appreciated

Try going to ms dos mode again and running chkd /f this is a more thorow scand and see if you are able to boot up without any problem.
