XP keeps checking my disk at boot

by jtonra / November 1, 2005 1:16 AM PST

I keep getting a message the my D: drive needs to be checked everytime I boot. I've let it run to completion as well as running chkdsk manually. No errors are found. Any ideas why this keeps happening on reboot and what I can do to stop it?

I'm running XP pro if that matters. This is not the boot drive. It's an SATA drive which has been working fine for months.

Is it over 127GB?

There are some issues only addressed in SP2 that we ran into with >127GB USB 2.0 drives. Your post is a little light on details so I'll comment on one likely item at a time or you can post more details.

Cheers,

Bob

Thanks for your help. I'm running xp pro sp2, current with all security patches, etc. Drive is a 250GB SATA drive. What other details do you need?

That clears up that one. How about this one.

We've covered just about all the usual and known items except you never shared a complete list of what's in the machine. For instance the above discussion is about a specific board with a known SATA bug. With each post you see a request for all your system info, including operating system, model number, and any other specifics related to the problem.

I don't mind working and trying it from the most likely and seeing what you can supply, but it goes faster with a complete post.

Cheers,

Bob

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?
