Is it possible to get to get a check disk program that fixes boot up errors or fixes members onto a usb drive?  Or if there was some program I could load on the usb drive so the computer would boot to it if I set the boot sequence.

Tap F8 while the computer is booting ..select repair my computer...you should get a dos window..run chkdsk /f command.

Usb not required.

What options do you see...it should say repair your computer.

What are the options and why do you want to run chkdsk.


Do you have the windows 7 disc.

No win 7 disk.  Brank new laptop.  Win 7 pro.  Reboot computer and I get blue screen for about 2 seconds and then reboots and goes to a screen that says windows failed to start and then shows the safe mode options or start windows normally.

if this is a brand new computer then replace it.

You can use the recovery option to reinstall windows but your will loose all your data.

If you tap F11 on boot you should get an option to wipe out all the data in the hard drive and reload windows but if its a new computer better replace it.

mkramer777--Computers are different.  Some use F2 or Delete to get to "repair your computer".
Or you should be able to do so using the Win 7 DVD.  You can borrow one from a friend, if you do not have one.  But you really should buy one from the PC maker for occasions like this.  Cost $10-20.

Command Prompt is probably what ded9 means by DOS Window.
