A disk is preventing my system to boot - Chibuokem - 05-11-2017

Good day guys, I tried booting my HP 250 G4, but it keeps on trying to fix problem with drive C, and does that repeatedly without booting. Please help what should I do.

It would help to see a picture of the error message
1. Have you tried running the startup fix wizard
2. Run a hardware diagnostics in BIOS to be sure the hard disk is OK

Alright. Please how do I do that, my windows version is 8.1.

Power off then power on the PC. once it responds to power, keep tapping F10 till it boots into BIOS.
Check for Diagnostics and run a Hard disk test

Please, I have done the diagnosis and the drive C is said to be bad. I have tried the fix option the system offered but a message came saying it wasn't successful. Something about windows c being locked and not responding to the fix attempt. Please what next?

Remove the hard disk, connect to another PC (as slave) then retry fixing

Alright. I eventually had to clean the entire hard disk, after which the system came on, thanks for you help.
