Maybe something from the Vista forums might help.

After reading a good part of the article, I have a question for Brink:
Chkdsk will Not Run at Startup in Vista - Vista Forums

I first ran the sfc /scannow command and after it had completed, the message "Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violations".

I tried running Disk Check through my utilities program and under the normal parameters (i.e. not attempting to repair any files) it completed.

When I tried a more thorough approach, I was asked to reboot but got the same results as before (Disk Check has been canceled).

I have taken full ownership of the autochk.exe file, but as I am in Windows 7 64bit, the version of the file that I have is 6.1.7600.16385

Is there a replacement file for this so that if it is replaced I might get chkdsk to work on reboot?

Please let me know what steps I might have to take in case I missed something.

I know others in the Vista Forum had difficulties in getting to copy a new file over to the right path.

Tank you motc7 for the link and I'll await further instructions.

Sincerely,

KC


PS

There was something from a user stating he had done this:

"I have 3 HP Pavilion 6500 all experiencing the same problem.
The following procedure worked,
I’m just not sure if it’s specific to HP. HP support was no help!

HP Laptop Vista Ultimate 64

Hit F8 once every second right after starting the PC

This gets you into the DOS looking screen with safe mode and other options, select Repair
Recovery manager starts
Select Advanced Options
Select computer checkup
Select command prompt

CMD prompt starts in X:
Enter C: to change to the C drive
Enter chkdsk /f
When asked to force a dismount select Y

Check disk should now start automatically.
Exit then boot "

Is this valid for Windows 7 and does it have to be done each time to chkdsk or once it is done the issue will be solved and on future reboots all will work nicely?

KC,

You can use the tutorial below to extract a copy of the autochk.exe file directly from your Windows 7 installation disc. This way you are sure to have a clean copy of the same version.

Extract Files from Windows 7 Installation DVD


Check disk should run normally afterwards as long as no hard disk bad sectors are not detected.


However, you might consider doing a repair install instead. It would be faster and you will not lose anything.

Thank you Brink.

The only problem is that this laptop does not come with any disks at all.

Now, I have already made a Windows 7 64bit System Repair Disk.

Will using that work?

I am so very grateful for this forum.

No, it will not work with that. Here's a copy from my system in the ZIP file below. Double check the file version to make sure that it's the same as yours first though. Hopefully this may help.

Thank you Brink ... I will confirm once I get home and re-read the article so I know how to proceed.

I think basically once I replace this file I might be ready to go?

Brink,

I am sure I must have done something wrong, but I do not know what.

Referring to this article:
Chkdsk will Not Run at Startup in Vista - Vista Forums

STEP ONE:Safe Mode Workaround
This has not worked for me


STEP TWO:Run a SFC /SCANNOW Command
I ran this and there were no errors found



STEP THREE:Reset chkdsk BootExecute
I have not checked this yet

Edited: This value might already be correct but I have not verifed


STEP FOUR:Replace autochk.exe File
This I did yesterday with your download


STEP FIVE:Set Chkdsk to Run at Startup
I am unable to get it to run the thorough analysis without canceling



Will the missing step 3 possibly cure the ill?

Additionally,what about this advice from another user (I posted earlier on Page 1):

======================================================

Hit F8 once every second right after starting the PC

This gets you into the DOS looking screen with safe mode and other options, select Repair
Recovery manager starts
Select Advanced Options
Select computer checkup
Select command prompt
CMD prompt starts in X:
Enter C: to change to the C drive
Enter chkdsk /f
When asked to force a dismount select Y
Check disk should now start automatically.
Exit then boot "

======================================================


Thank you for your support.

Sincerely,
