    Windows 8 scanning and repairing C: drive on startup

    Hello, I recently went to command prompt on my main pc and did the following:
    chkdsk /f /r

    on my main computer. it said "the current thing is in use, would you like to run check disk on startup? (Y/N) I put Y, then restarted my computer.
    then it was stuck on 27% for about an hour, so I got worried and restarted my computer about two or three more times. it says "scanning and repairing drive (C 27% complete)" and none of the times it would load regular windows so I decided to just stick with it.
    It's been over 3 hours, and it's still stuck on 27%
    How can I disable it or how long will it take? Please help.. Thank you.

    12gb ram
    2 tb hard drive
    windows 8

    also I tried f8 and it just brings me back to system restore, and when I tried that it just gave me a black screen, so i'm just letting my PC sit and do the C: repair

    Try holding the power button to shut it off.
    Hold the button until all the lights go off.
    Release the button.

    Let it set a minute,
    Press the button again to turn it back on.
    See what happens.
