What is Elevated Mode?

I have been getting a blue screen a lot. I have run all the hardware diagnostics and everything checks out ok. I tried to run chkdsk from a c prompt but I get the message "Access denied as you do not have sufficient privileges. You have to invoke this utility running in elevated mode."
This is my home computer and I am the only one using it so I have not set up any user accounts. Why don't I have full privileges?

It simply means that the command prompt must be run as an administrator.
Start Orb > All Programs > Accessories > Right click command prompt and choose run as administrator
Then you should be able to run chkdsk
You'll be confronted with a message something to the effect that the volume cannot be locked do you want to run at next startup, simply type a "Y" and hit enter and reboot
Hope this helps
