Chkdsk at Startup

by raysavage / June 30, 2004 7:30 AM PDT

I am running win-xp-he OS. Almost every time I restart my computer, chkdsk runs, although never finds errors. How do I prevent this unnecessary (?) operation?
Thanks,
Ray Savage

Ray,

By any chances, you have Hewlett Packard (HP) ScanJet 5100c scanner? If that the case, try go to this 'http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=316506' to see if it can help you to fix it.

Regards,

In win98 you used to be able to run tweak ui (from microsoft) and disable that function. They did not put that into tweak ui for xp. Here's the link for it though-(http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/downloads/powertoys/xppowertoys.mspx). From my personal experience you don't want to disable it. If you do and you have an improper shutdown your files will corrupt and you will lose more and more fuctions until you will have to reinstall everything (from experience!). I know it might be annoying but it's best to just deal with it and be safe. Also make sure your going through proper shutdown and not just turning off the computer (as my son does sometimes).

Joseph:

Thanks for your response. My chkdsk pops up after start up or re-boot eventhough there has been no improper shut down. No errors are found; this occurs randomly (can't predict when it will happen, relate it to anything like new software, hardware, etc.). I have a USB external hard drive that I use for backups. The PC sometimes runs chkdisk for this drive. Still haven't found a way to disable automatic chkdsk.

Best regards,
Ray

Aha, may have been discussed before.

There is some unresolved issue with XP, External Hard Disks and what format (NTFS/FAT32) that causes this.

I have yet to hear that Microsoft is going to cure it.

Thanks for your response. I will keep a check on posts at this and other forums - hopefuly something will show up.

Let me be clear. It's a known bug/limitation. Microsoft...
by R. Proffitt Forum moderator / July 4, 2004 5:09 AM PDT

You need to take this one back to mother and ask for a fix. As of today, I know of no cure.

There is some that note it vanished if the external drive was NTFS and some can't run CHKDSK on the USB drive.

Microsoft seems to be a be preoccupied with security it seems.

However, If all fail I would suggest you to try to boot up with your installation CD then select a "Recovery Console" option then try to run two commands FIXMBR and FIXBOOT to see if it help.

Mine was doing the same. After installing the SP2 RC1; the problem went away and the computer even ran faster. Uninstalled the RC1. Problem came back. Installed the RC2 and it went away. Will not suggest installing the SP2 RC2 since it is only a beta, but I haven't experienced any problems with it. Went through all the fixes, but could't solve that problem.

I found a forum discussion on almost the same problem. It involves editing the Redistry. Maybe you will find it useful. Check it out HERE

This was discussed here, in windows XP Forum. Here's the Re:Re:Error Check message.

OK. Just trying to help. That thread you referred to was more than a month ago, and in a different context, although the solution, if it works, may be the same. Happy

Yes, it worked for this thread's poster ?
by Cetin Denislam / July 5, 2004 7:49 PM PDT

? but he replied in the pointed thread (it was better to post in both). Anyway, better one reply than nothing Wink

Yes, I know that you were trying to help and this thread had a resolution (your criteria ;-)). Both threads have in common the same registry path but a different BootExecute content.

Generally speaking, it doesn't matter how old the posted message was (I remember many Forums messages since six years before. That time windows XP was in testing tube). But I'd say that using actual Forum's software its content reading and/or marking is harder.
