    Hello, I've had my gaming computer for about 2 years now and I built it myself. I had recently changed some of the parts. one day I noticed that my computer, before it turned on, was saying "checking the drive for errors" and being the impatient guy that I am I restarted my computer. Then it would give me an option to skip the checking. I kept doing it cause it would let me into my computer without waiting hours. I was texting a friend one day and forgot to press a key to skip, I had to restart my computer 3 times. so now my computer is in an endless loop of automatic repair. I've tried using multiple USB recovery drives but nothing works. I even got a new hard drive and even that didn't do anything. Also whenever I try to recover from a drive it will go to %30 and then give me a message: "something went wrong while recovering your pc no changes were made". I have also done the whole DIR copying thing.
    Please Help I'm in a class that requires my computer

    Hi, patience grasshopper, press the win + r keys together in the run dialogue box type:-

    cmd (next, press ctrl+ shift + enter) an elevated cmd prompt will open. Copy the below cmd and right click anywhere in the cmd prompt window select "paste" the cmd will append to the prompt, press enter.

    fsutil dirty query c: > 0 & notepad 0

    Please let us see the notepad output.

    Volume - c: Is NOT Dirty.

    Might I also add that I can't boot into windows so I'm in the troubleshooting page with no way of booting into safe mode

    If it will not boot, then I would say that you clobbered the OS, by being the "impatient guy".
    The act of turning off a machine in the middle of trying to recover the OS, has a nasty habit of things getting clobbered.

    It appears to me, that you need to do a CLEAN install of your OS.

    The same way you did when you first built this machine!

    Well, you need to get out your legal copy of Windows 10 DVD, and boot to it.

    Where did you get this USB recovery drive?

    If your Windows 10 is legal, you can down load the OS and made a bootable DVD or USB thumb drive.

    Then you can do a clean install.

    I'm not trying to be rude sir, but in my first message I stated that I can't use the recover from a drive option, it always goes to 30% then gives me the message "something went wrong while recovering your pc no changes were made"

    Basically if you are not able to get into Windows after the checks, then the only real recourse is do a complete clean install of Windows, which means the drive will be wiped. It will need the product key that is assigned to the computer, which i assume its an OEM key and not from a vendor like Dell. If you don't have that, then you are out of luck.

    If you need data off from the drive, you will need an external USB dock to put the hard drive in and copy it to another computer.

    So you are telling us that you did not buy this copy of Windows 10 to be installed on this hardware?
