Um, I wasn't really sure where to post this, but Im guessing it has to do with my hard drive...

Okay so the problem is that chkdsk ran automaticly on start up. I let it run and after phase 3, where it does a security verification? And it freezes. So I reset the computer and skipped the process. Then I ran chkntfs for the drive that chkdsk ran on and it said it was "dirty." I'm not sure what that means but I'm getting the feeling that its not a good thing. So I ran chkdsk in command prompt and it freezes in the same point.

Should I be concerned about this or is it something I could just ignore, because I already stopped it from running automaticly on start-up.

BTW, I split my hard drive into two drives if that makes a difference. Also its NTFS.

Please help. Thanks.

I would suggest going to the hard drive maker’s web site and download a hard drive eraser. This program will write zeros across your entire hard drive partition. Then try and reloading your OS, hope this helps.
