chkdsk needs exclusive control of the HD, when you run it without the /f switch it just reports the errors and then tells you it can't continue.

You can run check disk from your desktop. Just make sure that you use the command:
chkdsk volume:/f
Please click the link below for details on how to run this command. Locate the section entitled "Manual steps to run Chkdsk at the command prompt." for step by step directions.

I found this on the microsoft site - I figured it would be a good read for you - it walks you through all of the switches you can use with Chkdsk
