I've always been getting blue screens, but they're starting to become more and more frequent. I haven't been able to use my laptop for more than a day without one showing up! The stop codes I've been getting are 0x0000000A and 0x0000001E. I tried running a chkdsk and it told me it would during the next start up because the volume is in use. So at the next start up it ran chkdsk without fixing or repairing anything. The event properties for the last check is: Chkdsk was executed in read-only mode. A volume snapshot was not used. Extra errors and warnings may be reported as the volume may have changed during the chkdsk run. Checking file system on C: The type of the file system is NTFS. The volume is in use by another process. Chkdsk might report errors when no corruption is present. WARNING! F parameter not specified. Running CHKDSK in read-only mode.

Is there any way to close the processes that prevent chkdsk from working manually? Because it won't fix anything at the reboots. I just can't for the life of me figure out how to make chkdsk c: /f work. I'm really new to trying to fix things like this, excuse me for not knowing what something may mean. Please help, thank you.
