Scandisk Problem

by tonyssn639 / April 27, 2006 7:15 AM PDT

I tried to run my scandisk on my computer a while back. I left my laptop on and went and did something. I thought it ran the scandisk...but everytime my laptop boots up (windows xp) the blue scan disk screen comes up when it should...but it says that the c drive or something like that does not have access and that scandisk cannot be completed at this time. How do I get my laptop to stop doing this? Thanks for the time.

it to run at the next startup. If you have more than one volume, specify which. Also configure it to "fix" any errors. Running it without a command to fix errors will only cause it to check for them.

It isn't such a big idea that every time my laptop boots up it goes to that screen...does anybody think that it is hurting it. I have looked under scheduled tasks, I think I looked everywhere under msconfig that I know I can look at. I just didn't know if anybody knew just a simple place to go to un schedule it. thanks for the help

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
