    Is it really necessary? I'd have to use a screw-driver to open the battery section, and the problem seems to be in the hard-drive?
    (Still, I can do it if you think it could actually help...)

    From the TroubleShooting screen choose Command Prompt
    You will need to find the OS drive, as it may have changed in the RE(Recovery Environment)
    At command prompt (x: sources) type this exactly as written:
    bcdedit |find “osdevice” (Must inc and the |), the | before Find is the Upper case \ key) press enter. This will tell you what drive letter the OS is on.It may not be on the C: drive.
    Now use the returned as the drive letter for OS, for this example, assume C: or whatever drive letter is the os device.
    At the x sources type: chkdsk c: /r press enter, 5 stages of check disk will run. It will test the HDD for errors. it may take a while.

    I wrote exactly what you told me to, but i didn't get the drive letter for the OS? There is a space between bcdedit and |find right?
    Already checked for misspelling errors but i didn't make any... Also, there is a space between find and "osdevice"? After writing (what i think is exactly what you told me to) i just get a new x:\Sources> command line under the one i just wrote.

    Hi,

    It is exactly as written by spunk in his post above:

    Code:
    bcdedit |find “osdevice”
    It should then return partition=C: or whatever the drive letter is in your case.

    Cheers,

    This just doesn't work for some reason... I've typed in exactly what you told me but it does nothing. Nothing at all... As already stated, the only thing that happens is that a new command line X:\Sources> appears under what i just wrote. My keyboard is nordic (includes characters like ä,ö and ö). Could it be causing some problems? I know it sounds stupid, but it's the only option that i can come up with. Anyway, i wrote the chkdsk c: /r just to see what happens, and it gave me this as an answer: The type of the file system is RAW. CHKDSK is not available for RAW drives.

    I'm kinda starting to loose hope on this damned laptop... Maybe it's time to just buy a new one

    Try running the portable versions of Crystal Diskinfo and Macrorit Discanner
    Macrorit Disk Scanner Scan Disk and Check Bad Sectors in Windows Server partition

    to get an idea of whether your disk is failing.

    It is possible but awkward to clear the 'dirty bit' that causes chkdsk to run. The whole idea is that running chkdsk whould do that, and sometimes that does take a long time.
    Anyway here's one approach:
    Manually Reset or Clear Dirty Bit in Windows without using CHKDSK • Raymond.CC - Page 2
