I know how to run scan disk
Ive done so countless times before.
And there IS a scandisk; youre giving me the DOS version (chkdsk) which i have also done before, when i had no choice.
The steps Mircrosoft gave to me, were no where near complicated; they were some steps taken in certain programs in Windows that i have forgotten.
But my friends laptop does have scandisk activated.
Thanks for your inputs
