how to disable chkdsk from startup on windows 7

So I seen numerous people have this problem and searched for answers. I got some but they all do not work. Everytime I boot my computer I come across the chkdsk screen and than it checks.....it does it EVERYTIME! I want to disable it. When I want to skip it also it freezes when it reaches 1 second.

anyways I done the regedit thing and it doesnt work..


I'm running 64-bith windows 7 on an asus m50vm series laptop.

I also done the command prompt where you have to type in like "chkdsk /X C:" that sort of stuff and still doesnt work...Everytime I type that into the command prompt I get this..

Just a shot in the dark! Have you a USB stick or perhaps an SD card in the machine when you boot up? Also can you work out when this first happened? If so have you tried a System Restore to behind that date?

Run a sfc /scannow command.

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

I don't have any USB sticks or SD cards but I do have like various things plugged in like my razer mouse. And speakers. An Apple USB Cable but it isn't connected to anything.

Wasn't there a chkdsk problem on Windows 7 machines partitioned with Acronis?

You said that you tried several settings in the registry. Did you try

autocheck autochk /K:C *

Normally the K switch should turn it off. Make sure there is a blank in front of the slash and the *
