Problems running chkdsk on win 7

  Flak999 21:35 08 Jan 2018

Hi again still having complete nightmare with blue screens, so am running chkdsk in the windows environment. I have ticked both boxes to check the disk for errors and also to fix any errors it finds..

It flew through stages 1-3 and then stopped at the segment saying chkdsk is verifying file data (stage 4 of 5) 22% complete (87394 of 265968 files processed)

It has been stopped at this stage for 4 1/2 hours now!

Has it crashed should I reboot the system is this an indication that my hard disk a 7 year old SSD is failing?

I am a bit at a loss to know what to do next! Any help gratefully appreciated.

It is STOP: 0x000000F4 followed by loads more numbers. Sometimes this changes, sometimes it runs chkdsk after a restart. It seems like the whole system is collapsing and I really don't have a clue where to start to know how to fix it. I feel like chucking the whole thing into the bin and buying a new one!

Have completed malwarebytes scan in safe mode, nothing found. Have just run sfc /scannow also in safe mode and it is stuck at verification 50% complete and is not moving!

System has just hung whilst in safe mode during the sfc /scannow procedure.

Ok rebooted and completed scannow in safe mode, no violations. No new hardware, new graphics driver, but I uninstalled that and rolled back. Machine still locking up even in safe mode!
