i am trying to run scandisc,i have checked both boxes then restart my pc.on restart scandisc says unable to gain access to disc?i ran this about a month ago no problem and have not changed any settings that i can think of.any ideas please?thanks.
i dont have an xp disc as windows came pre installed.what in disc/properties/tools/errorchecking,i can tick "scan and attempt recovery of bad sectors" this runs ok and does not reboot to do it.however when i ticked "automatically fix file system errors"it tells me to reboot,when i restart it says a disc check has been sceduled,its at this point that i get a message saying that it is unable to gain access to the disc.my pc then starts up normally.this also means that it will try to run every time i need to start pc.annoying!
i know this.want it to run when i start up.this is my problem.as i ticked the automatically fix button,it asked me to restart and it does normally.when it starts up though it throws up the message that it cant gain access.everything in windows working as normal.just chkdsk trying to run wvery time i restart or turn on and failing!AAAAAaaggggh!but thanks anyway for the suggestions.
MSconfig? Turn off everything that normally comes on at startup virus checker etc but not windows services and then do a restart. Does the right click option not work? If it did then this might stop chkdsk from starting each time you do a restart. Best I can do sorry.
