    Windows 8.0 Pro 64 bit "Diag PC & Auto repair


    I was running my pc with Windows 8.0 Pro 64 bit and I now getting a screen with the Windows logo and I am now getting
    a message "Diagnosing PC & Auto repairing disk errors may take several hours".

    It has been like that for a couple of hours.

    Any suggestions how long I should leave it running or perhaps I should do a fresh reinstall of Windows, I have the Microsoft DVDs?

    Kind regards,

    Walter

    I never heard of that message before.
    I would shut it off & see what happens.

    In general, to repair stuff sfc & dism do the job.

    You have the dvds so you have nothing to lose really.{IMHO}

    I powered my pc of and left it off for about 2 hours then I powered it on and received the same message.

    I guess it time to bite the bullet and do a complete reinstall of Windows 8.0 then update to 8.1 via the download then reinstall my applications then install my applications.

    At least I keep my data on a physical separate drive.

    Regards,
