Hey.

Whenever i boot up my PC, this happened about 3 days ago when i installed Medal of honor and Need for speed : carbon on my PC, it runs a disk-check, there were NO disks in my drive, and so i just let it run. Now it says the disk-check has been completed, the first message i received when it booted it up was

'One of your drives needs to be checked for consistency'.

I let it run, booted up, perfect, but then i restarted it and it keeps on coming on every boot-up, i can't seem to find a way to disable it. Disk-check on every boot, how can i disable/fix this?

My computer specs:

Manufacterer: eMachines
OS: Windows XP Home edition SP2
Ram: 512MB (504 Availible)
Processor: Pentium 4 2.9ghz

It doesn't tell me what drive it's checking + there is 40.9GB free on C:\ (out of 60GB)

The file system of the said drive is NTFS or not?

Right click the Drive, then click Properties > Tools > look for Disk check option here, click Check now then select "Automatically fix file system errors" and click Start. It may tell you that it will be done on next reboot since its in use. It's fine, just restart and let it happen. Let it boot in Windows and restart to see if it happens again...

Try defragmentation too.

When you run that chkdsk...you need to put check marks in both options, scan and recover.

How many partitions are there on this system? Is the C: partition the only one?
