My laptop is Windows 8.1 with HDD - An old SYSTEM 4-GEN Intel Processor 2-CORES, 4-THREADS, DDR3 4GB,
As described here:
The File is Under 20GB IS ANY ERROR, Why so small??? max compression chosen | Acronis Forum
failing to backup, due to HDD errors...

I did a manual backup of 97% of all Files/Folders
I am ready to run
F:> chkdsk /f
but my Windows 8.1 system shows on Switch Off:
Sleep
Shut Down and Update
Restart and Update
So, I must run F:>
chkdsk /f and after updating my laptop??? or vice versa???

Have you tried switching it back on from Windows services? Perhaps you could manually copy your important files onto another drive and try a reset if you can't get Services to work. If you have all your important files backed up already you could try System Restore if you managed to make some restore points. You should be able to run chkdsk after updating. If you can't then you would do well to get that fixed.
