ChkDsk stuck at 16%?

So I've had a problem with my desktop where I was watching Netflix and it crashed to a black screen and the PC was on, so I hard reset the PC and it would boot but the screen would not load windows, it would load bios but windows wouldn't turn on. So I was confused so I ran the PC in safe mode and I decided to do a chkdsk /r for my C: drive. The percentage was rising really quickly but has been stagnant for 5 hours from the time this is posted and I was curious if this is normal. The chkdsk is not the command prompt one, it is the one on the bios page. At what point if at any should I turn off my PC? How long should this take and thank you to anyone/everyone who responds. :)

**EDIT** Forgot to include that I got on Safemode using the recovery system and I did do chkdsk and I got a corrupted file once but it was in "read-only" so it wouldn't fix the corrupted file. Update and it's still at 16% 8 hours later, and I don't know if this matters but it still accepts new USB devices to be added.

  2. transfer any data off of it while you can, just in case it is failing...(many drives that suffer a head crash will only work a scant limited 5-10 hours afterward)

    Once that's done, a delete partition,quick format/reinstall so you can at least try a fresh start with it just in case it is/was a minor corruption issue only....

    Pull SMART data via GSmartControl....

  3. It started to work after a safe-mode anti-virus scan and leaving it running a chkdsk overnight
