chkdsk absolutely will not run

Guest

alright, so i posted previously but no one really helped me so i am trying
again. i have windows vista and i know other people have had a problem with
running chkdsk after restart with vista, so hopefully someone can help me. i
have tried scheduling it to run many times, using both the preferences and
the command prompt, and every time i restart, nothing happens.
please tell me there is something that i can do. the problem that needs to
be fixed is preventing me from accessing itunes, and i am dying without my
music, so please help!

Boot from the Vista DVD. Select Language, Time and Keyboard options on the
first screen. Select 'Repair your computer' on next. System Recovery will ask
which operating system you want to repair, select Vista which is probably the
only option. Pick Command Prompt on next screen. Type chkdsk C: /f (change
drive letter if the problem is on a drive other than C:).

what do you mean by "boot from the vista dvd"
vista just came on my computer, should there be a dvd that came with all the
computer stuff?

I found what might be an answer to your problem on the microsoft help
website. Since you don't have a vista CD, I'm assuming you must have
their startup repair feature installed somewhere on your system. If
that's the case, microsoft says to do this (sorry, the formatting's kind
of off when i paste it):

If Startup Repair is a preinstalled recovery option on your computer:



1. Remove all floppy disks, CDs, and DVDs
from your computer, and then restart your computer.
Click the *Start* button [image:
http://windowshelp.microsoft.com/Qu...-48f232a2fd33&DocumentSet=en-US&RenderKey=XML],
click the arrow next to the *Lock*[image:
http://windowshelp.microsoft.com/Qu...-1ad6c83b705c&DocumentSet=en-US&RenderKey=XML],
and then click *Restart*. button
2. Do one of the following:
•If your computer has a single operating system installed, press and
hold the F8 key as your computer restarts. You need to press F8 before
the Windows logo appears. If the Windows logo appears, you will need to
try again by waiting until the Windows logon prompt appears, and then
shutting down and restarting your computer.
•If your computer has more than one operating system, use the arrow
keys to highlight the operating system you want to repair, and then
press and hold F8.
3. On the *Advanced Boot Options* screen,
use the arrow keys to highlight *Repair your computer*, and then press
ENTER. (If *Repair your computer* is not listed as an option, then your
computer does not include Startup Repair as a preinstalled recovery
option.)
4. Select a keyboard layout, and then click
*Next*.
5. Select a user name and enter the
password, and then click *OK*.
6. On the System Recovery Options menu,
click *Startup Repair*. Startup Repair might prompt you to make choices
as it tries to fix the problem and, if necessary, it might restart your
computer as it makes repairs.


Once the repair console comes up, follow AndyP's instructions. (You
may have to disregard step six above).
If you don't have it pre-installed, you can try to boot into safe mode
with command prompt. if you don't know how:

hope one of these helps. if not, the only other thing i could think of
would be making a bootable disk with the utility on it, but that's way
over complicated. hopefully if neither of these options helps, somebody
else with more knowledge can lend you a hand.
