PLEASE SUPPLY RELEVANT INFORMATION:
Operating System Version:Windows XP Pro
Problem Application Name & Version:Windows XP Pro  Start up
Problem Hardware Make & Model:
Error Messages:Disk Consistency Check



I have this strange problem, chkdsk keeps running for one of my partitions (E:, where XP is installed) everytime XP boots. I let it finish and there was no errors. Next time XP boots again, chkdsk pops up again. It's just very annoying. How do I stop chkdsk from running.

Hi,

Open an MS-DOS Prompt and type 'chkntfs e:' to make sure the drive is not 'dirty'
If not, then type 'chkntfs /d'

Hi,

Run 'chkdsk e: /f' to fix errors. You can also run 'chkdsk e: /r' instead to check for bad sectors (may take longer to scan)

or

You can open "My Computer", right click drive E: and select "Properties". On the Tools tab look at the "Error Checking" section, click "Check Now..." button and select "Automatically fix..." option (equal to chkdsk /f) or both options (equal to chkdsk /r)

CHKDSK may schedule the check to run during next reboot.

Hi,

Did you use the "automatically fix...." option?

I would try to run 'chkdsk e: /f' from an MS-DOS Prompt, shutdown and let chkdsk finish, then run 'chkntfs e:' from an MS-DOS Prompt to see if the drive is still reported 'dirty'

I had run 'chkdsk e: /f' from an MS-DOS Prompt, shutdown and when chkdsk finished, then ran 'chkntfs e:' from  MS-DOS Prompt and the drive E was  reported 'not dirty'for the first time. But next time when I rebooted again, it started for chk disk. Again I ran  'chkntfs e:' from  MS-DOS Prompt,which says drive E is dirty. What to do now?

Hi,

If you can get it back to chkntfs stating the drive is not dirty, then right away type 'chkntfs /d' to reset chkdsk to normal behavior. If on the next reboot chkdsk runs and the drive is still marked dirty, perhaps the drive has bad sectors and data is getting corrupted.

Try running chkdsk with the /r option to check bad sectors.

I think running chkdsk with the /r option to check bad sectors did the magic. Thanks again
