    My computer hanged up, I ran safe mode and found out it froze at agp440.sys. I used the recovery console to disable that, but now it hangs at Mup.sys.

    I tried doing a chkdisk, but I am confused as what exactly to type?

    http://www.microsoft.com/resources/.../proddocs/en-us/bootcons_chkdsk.mspx?mfr=true

    So what I type in recovery console is exactly:

    chkdsk[C:][/p][/r]

    But it says the command is not recognized? Can somebody please tell me how to fix what I wrote? When I type chkdsk it just tells me the status but I need it to run the chkdsk and recover errors. Thank you so much in advance!!!!

    Hi!

    To run Checkdisk, use the following command:
    *there is only on space, it's between "chkdsk" and "/r"

    To run it on a specific drive (in this example,drive c):
    BTW, sometimes safe mode can take a very long time to load (up to 10 minutes) and only seems to hang at a certain point.
