Does chkdsk say there are no errors, or it finds errors it can't fix, or finds errors and fixes them each time?

Chkdsk will have created a log in the Event Viewer in the Application log (Start | Run, type eventvwr.msc, press Enter) with a source of WinLogon (Wininit Vista/Win 7) that will show a summary of the results.

You can click the Source column header to sort by Source, or Filter the view

  • Win2K/XP:
    Click View | Filter... and select WinLogon[/B] as the Event Source.
    Click View | All Records to remove the filter
  • Vista/Win 7:
    Click Action | Filter Current log... and check Wininit in the Event Sources: drop down.
    Click Action | Clear Filter to remove the filter

What do the entries in the Application log, with a source of Winlogon, that list the chkdsk summary info say?
Double click the entries. Press the Copy button
to copy the info to the clip board, then paste the info into Notepad to make them easier to read and compare.

It'll look something like this:
Code:

Event Source:    Winlogon
Event Category:    None
