This is quite long and may have misses a few bits The local disc (c) has errors Windows has detected file system corruption on local disc (c).You must check the disc for errors before it can be restored.Check the disc for errors Automatically fix file system errors start Windows can't check the disc whils't it is in use Check next time it restarts Start Restart Checking file system on (c)

Then there is a black screen with lots of writing to much to put on here.Anyone have any idea of the problem.Sorry it is so long.

You could run sfc /scannow in cmd as administrator to see if that finds and fixes any problems.

The next thing to run would be chkdsk but wait till others can give you the proper advice on that.

Its already checking the disk for errors after a reboot. Its a warning from Windows that there's something wrong with the drive. Once completed and you're back on the desktop now is the time to create an image on an external drive. That way if the drive fails then all you need to do is replace the drive with a new one and boot from the recovery CD (Macrium CD if you use that program) and restore the image.

What I have done is Start CMD in search Right click cmd Click run as administrator typed in sfc/scannon Enter At the end it said Windows resource protection did not find any integrity violations. So not sure what to do next

HAve you tried restarting ? it should have booked a check disk

when you restart it will bootinto check disk and check and repair the drive then boot into windows.

Restart and leave windows to run checkdisk may take some time.

So are you saying it may need a new hard drive.I had a new hard rive fitted in October I believe and I have the old drive here in my hand.It is a Seagate Momentus 6 500 gb.My laptop is a Asus K73E.Surely the drive should not need replacing after only about five months.Will check to see when it was actually replaced.

No we are not saying you need a new drive. Windows is saying the file syystem has become corrupted and need repairing.

Corruption can be caused by many things such as virus malware or power interruptions

When I restart it starts to do the check after ten seconds but it then says autocheck cannot run due to an error caused by a recently installed software package use system restore but have tried and it cannot run.Will try it again now and come back with what it says

Have just tries system restore again and it says The local disc (c) has errors you must check the disc for errors before it can be restored.So how do I check for and fix any errors.

If using W7 right click C drive. Then click on properties. Click on tools and tick both boxes. then reboot.

If W10 best using CMD commands I would imagine.I am sure someone will be able to supply the correct commands for you.

Ok will try that now but have just tried something similar and got as far as tools and then I got the same message I have been getting but who knows
