    Scanning and repairing drive C (chkdsk) stuck at 100%


    Hello,
    This is my first post here. I have been having trouble with my laptop lately. I was trying to install a new driver for my graphics card when my computer suddenly rebooted, I was forced to refresh Windows 8, then an even bigger problem happened, windows kept thinking that it was not registered but when i go to system from the control panel it says it is registered and gives me the product code, so I read somewhere that doing the chkdsk scan will fix this so i did it, first it was stuck 27% for about 4 hours then it is currently stuck at 100%, its been at 100%for about 13 hours now. I do not know what to do, afraid to force restart, might cause errors.
    Thanks in advance.

    This batch file runs the dism & sfc commands.
    After downloading it right click it & click Properties & Unblock it.
    Then right click it & choose Run as administrator.

    When dism completes press a key to get sfc to start.
    Both scans together might take 2 hours to complete.

    When they are done, restart.

    dism.bat

    If needed run 'em again.

    Yes.
    The batch file should repair any errors.

    You should leave it run, or, go ahead & restart & run sfc /scannow in an administrator command prompt:

    Run:

    Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth

    in an administrator command prompt & run sfc /scannow again.
