Chkdsk hanging

so my hdd reported errors and I let it run chkdsk as it started vista, it is a wd 640gb drive so quite large.
it gets to stage 4, 56% and then just sits there, ive left it for an hour and its still there, 56%.
the hdd light is still lit on front of pc, is it hanging or should i leave it even longer?

    Find the FREE defrager , run it, AND from WWW.MAJORGEEKS.COM find a free registry cleaner, see if that helps, also a bootable device with scandisk would be of some assistance......:)
  2. You may also want to run the disk manufacturer's diagnostic software on the drive to see if there are problems with the drive.
