    Getting error message “Run CHKDSK /F to check for hard drive corruption, STOP: 0x0000007B” while booting up Windows Vista after a failed system restore

    While I was trying to perform a system restore to last checkpoint set up on my PC running on Windows Vista, some unknown error happened on the screen and the process failed in the middle. When I rebooted the system after that, I have encountered an error message “Run CHKDSK /F to check for hard drive corruption, STOP: 0x0000007B” with blue screen. How can I resolve this error?

    The first step required is to restart your system by pressing the ‘Power’ button. Tap the F8 key intermittently in between the restarting process. You can stop this tapping when the Advanced Boot Options menu pops up on the screen. Navigate through that menu and locate the ‘safe mode with command prompt’ option. You can use the Up/down arrow key on the keyboard to select this option. Wait until you can view command prompt window on the screen. Finally, type the commands, Chkdsk /R and Chkdsk /F into this window and press the ‘Enter’ key.

    Hi,

    The message displays a serious error in the Hard Disk which is physical, and the system is prompting you to take evesive action and it even directs you to take specific step by suggesting a chkdsk/f which means chechdisk along with file system for corruption finding and correcting if possible.

    Boot in "Safe Mode with Command Prompt", by pressing F8 at the beginning of the booting process after the POST check.
    Once the command prompt is found type in c:\chkdsk/f, and the system will do it`s duty.

    Log in Windows normally after the chkdsk is done.

    Thanks.

    Hi.
    It seems to be that the hard drive is corrupted so you are getting this error message to running chkdsk.
    You may start the computer in safe mode with command prompt and see if you can boot. Then run chkdsk.
    To do this follow these steps:
    >>Restart your computer if it is powered on.
    >>Tap the F8 key after your computer initially powers on.
    >>Once you see the Advanced Boot Options menu you can stop tapping.
    >>Use the up/down arrow keys to select safe mode with command prompt.
    >>In the command prompt window, type the following command and press enter Chkdsk /R and Chkdsk /F
    Using recovery DVD, you cannot go into winRE (Windows Recovery Environment) mode to run chkdsk. You need either full version DVD or Vista repair disk.

    Thank you.

    :: For fixing this error, you need to restart your PC.

    :: After restarting the, you tap the T8 key continually until you get the “Advanced Boot “Options.

    :: Now move to downward with the help of up/down arrow key.

    :: And then select the ""safe mode with command prompt”” and open it.

    :: Now type the Chkdsk /R and Chkdsk /F command in to command prompt and then enter.

    :: This will fix this error OK.
