When I started up my computer, a Dell Optiplex 780, I was presented with a black checkdisk screen that reads ""to skip disk checking press any key" withing 5 seconds, but no matter how many keys I pressed, the counter WILL NOT stop counting down and the disk check proceeds EVEN THOUGH I HIT MULTIPLE keys MULTIPLE times!!! powering off the machine and trying again STILL NOT WORKING!! THERE IS NO WAY to MAKE IT STOP when I NEED TO DO SOMETHING IMPORTANT!!! I Googled the problem but NOTHING CAME UP like this has NEVER been a problem WITH ANYBODY ELSE IN THE PAST!!!

 

Any ideas on what the problem may be???

Let it run the full cycle of checking the disk.

 

Post back any results.

 

You may need to repair the disk for any errors etc.

I hope you have made current, recent, backups on your trusted external media before this situation started.

Let it run the full cycle of checking the disk.

This recommendation is not exactly the best. If the primary (system dir) drive is 300 to 500 GB or even larger, it takes a very long time. And that is not essential, even not recommended to run on every time when the computer starts or simply restarts.

The best thing is to disable autoscan and run it manually, if is some kind of suspicion, or regularly after a certain time.

There are several options on how to disable it:
  • use some an appropriate tool, such as Windows Yamicsoft Manager;
  • Registry method;
  • command line method;

Here is one simple story explaining what it is and how to do it manually.

I would let the scan proceed...and I would never try to stop the automatic disk check triggered by Windows.  The auto disk check indicates a problem with the files/file system and is the Windows attempt to clear it.

 

After the system boots, I would then run the chkdsk /r command on the partition, since the auto check disk is not necessarily capable of dealing with whatever problem there is, while the chkdsk /r command is the best effort that Windows can make to resolve the perceived issues.

Slyveon, I recommend combining the advice of both Hamlius and Kaljukass; do as Hamlius recommended, and later, add on Kaljukass' advice after the current run is finished.  Hamlius is correct about not disabling whatever Windows will automatically run.  I also recommend downloading, installing and using whatever long-term maintenance utilities BC recommends.  [BTW, I am not referring to PC tune-ups, speeder-uppers, registry-fixers/compressors, and other similar more-grief-than-joy utilities.]
