Laptop runs chkdsk everytime i boot

March 28, 2009 at 15:30:37
Specs: Windows Vista SP1
Every time i start my computer it says it needs to check for consistency on the C: drive. I have tried letting it run through and it goes through fine, however, it still does it again when i restart the laptop. I make sure I properly shut it down each time so I'm not sure why it does this.

My laptop is an HP Pavilion dx6650us
Intel Core 2 Duo T5250
2 gigs memory

This may work, click the Windows Orb (Start) > All Programs > Accessories and right-click Command Prompt, then ‘Run as Administrator’, now type CHKNTFS /D (the capitals are for clarity only) and press Enter.

Step by step that means:

Start the registry editor by clicking Start, then Run, typing in regedit and pressing OK. The result will be similar to this:

Click on the boxed plus sign [+] in front of HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE. That will expand

Don't worry if your instance of Regedit already had some of these expanded; it remembers the last setting. Just follow along as if it hadn't been, expanding the nodes that we need if they're not already expanded.

Expand (by clicking the boxed plus sign in front of) SYSTEM

Expand CurrentControlSet

Expand Control

Now click on Session Manager, which is listed underneath Control

In the right-hand pane, double click on BootExecute. This contains the instruction that we want to remove.

The command "autocheck autochk /p \??\C:" is what we want to change.

Change replace the "/p \??\C:" with an asterisk (*). The resulting command, "autocheck autochk *" in the dialog looks like this:

Press OK to dismiss the edit dialog.

Close Registry Editor

Now, on your next boot the disk checker should not run.

I say "should" because there are still things that may cause it to run anyway:

You didn't shut down your machine cleanly. Perhaps your machine crashed or suddenly rebooted. Or perhaps you were in a hurry and turned off the power before Windows said it was safe to do so. In both cases Windows may not have finished updating information on the hard disk on shutdown, so it must check the disk on start up to make sure that everything is ok.

The disk may be failing. It's sometimes the case that a disk drive, as it starts to fail, will do so in a way that causes Windows to notice and run the disk checking utility on start up. It's not common, but it can happen.
