    I should be able to find some software that will meet your needs.

    Can you explain the problem you’re having with your computer so I can suggest the right type of hardware diagnostic software?

    Also, when you say “doesn’t require a disk drive” are you referring to a CD/DVD drive?

    No specific problems really. It keeps telling me that there a corrupted file for google chrome and to run chkdsk in C, which i have done but it keeps giving me the same warning. I was recommended to disk doctor my netbook every couple of months, but ive now had it for two years.

    Yes sorry i mean DVD drive.

    Thank you!

    Picked as best answer

    Do the following:

    Start> Run… > Type in cmd and click OK

    This will bring up a DOS prompt. Type in

    CHKDSK /F

    It should say something about needing to restart the computer go ahead and do that, and as the computer boots up it will run a full scan of the drive. This should fix your problem. If it doesn’t, uninstall google chrome (make sure to backup your bookmarks), re-download it and install it again.
