Im having a damn PC issue where it wants to run chkdisk on reboot.... New hardware, have installed on both HDD's and same thing. Will work perfectly fine for awhile then bam... chkdisk.. I cant narrow this down to a program doing it, so maybe I can just turn the damn thing off?

You look in your startup tasks ?


Start / Run / type msconfig <enter> under "startup" (I know, duhh..... Some ppl are blind, tho)


See if it's set there to execute on boot. Unlikely, but you never know......


How old is the hard drive ? Maybe it's bout to take a shit on you ?

Might be a warning you wanna heed

On XP you can run chkntfs from a command prompt before you reboot. It will tell you if the disk is marked as dirty. You can use the /x option to override the check, but the disk is probably getting flagged for a reason.

Rename the chkdsk files to _old or something. Don't forget chkntfs. In W2K server, there is a registry key to kill the chkdsk. Not sure about on XP and the registry key escapes me now.

Never mind I just used it 2 days ago to save a cluster server.
