I wish to run Chkdsk /f but how do I get into Dos from windows.
If you select start, programme file then accessories you will find an icon for the command prompt. Hope this helps
Click on Start, then select Run then type in cmd click OK. This will give you a DOS window to use and resize to taste.
Sorry guys but neither of your methods work as you are still in windows.
If you mean to just run DOS without starting Windows, then I don't think you can unless you have a seperate disk partition with an old DOS version on it. I may be wrong and if so, I stand to be corrected.
"Sorry guys but neither of your methods work as you are still in windows."There are certain programs that need to be run under DOS from outside of windows, but chkdsk /f will run from the cmd prompt. What will happen is that chkdsk runs during the next boot sequence.
You would need something like a win98 startup floppy disk and boot from there
If you right click on your hard drive from My Computer>Explore>HDD.Tools tab and choose Properties, you can schedule a Chkdsk operation on a reboot.
