Windows 7: Check disk runs on EVERY boot

Check disk runs on EVERY boot

As the title says, it's as though I ran chkdsk /r before I restarted, pressing a key does not cancel it. I ran a chkdsk and it found no errors. Oh, when it runs at boot it gets to 1 second then just stops, pressing keys does nothing, I have to hold the power button and restart then it's fine, until the next reboot.

PC is an HP DV6-1375DX laptop. 500 GB HDD, 6 GB memory, Win 7 HP.

Unfortunately that is sometimes a a sign of Hard Drive problems, back up your stuff now, just in case.

You may want to test your hard drive, too

After running the maker's HD diag/repair CD extended scan linked by Rich above, run Disk Check from DVD or Repair CD Command Line as it runs better and can resolve the hung loop.

Actually, somehow it decided to actually run for me on the most recent reboot, we'll see what happens next time I reboot. I normally go to hibernate or sleep rather than a full shutdown so my reboots are usually only when I get Windows updates or update an app that requires reboot. Definitely running backup tonight and maybe the HDD diags overnight tomorrow...

Give backup top priority. Hard drives go without warning.

HDD diagnostics/repair scan followed by Disk Check take no more than an hour apiece on normal size HD.

Completed the backup, ran HP's Insight diagnostics (I have it on a flash drive for work) and it found no issues with the HDD. Rebooting is no longer giving me the disk check. Wonder what happened, and why it finally decided to complete the disk check....

Disk Check at startup can be running dysfunctionally, often sorted by booting the Repair CD or DVD to run it from Command Line: Disk Check

It could have also been a bad block or surface error triggering auto Disk Check which couldn't begin to repair it. This is why HD diagnostics are required. The best version is the HD maker's own branded diag/repair extended bootable CD scan, not a generic or partition manager surface scan.

This would be why I ran the HP Insight diagnostics (HP's diagnostic app for my PC) which reported no errors or problems with the HDD.

My concern wasn't over the health of the drive, I've seen none of the other typical indications of a failing HDD. My concern was that the disk check wasn't letting me cancel and it would get to 1 on the countdown and just sit there. It's finally run, it found no errors and HP's diagnostics (which I rely on just like Dell's diagnostics for their computers, both of which I support for a Fortune-100 company) found no errors.

I was just seeing if there was a way to 'un-set' the bit in the file system that got stuck 'on' for running the disk check. I never found a way in XP, was hoping 7 was different.

Hello Mike,

I'm happy to hear it's no longer runing at startup for you anymore.

If it happens again, you might also try this below to reset chkdsk to see if it may help stop it.

Check Disk - Reset

Hope this helps,
Shawn
