Disk Check Message

Q: Disk Check Message

Hello i have a problem similar to this http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Boot-and-Lockup/Disk-Check-Issue/td-p/5466973. In summary i always get a message: To turn off Disk Check, press any key in x number of seconds.I dont press anything and the count down stops, check disk doesnt run and the system boots ok. If i use chkdsk /f c: to scedule a full scan during boot, the same things happen. No full check of disks. I have tried several things. A. After installing Creators update, did a reset of the pc (delete all files and apps and reinstall )B. Performed checkdisk in all drives within windowsC. Checked for dirty bits, with fsutil, and even hex editor on all drivesD. Used chkntfs /x c: d , to stop checkingE. Tried the solution on the link above, and tried to fix startup problems. Nothing has worked so far. Message is there all the time, check disk doesnt run, but i just have the countdown! Any other solutions?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hello again. In my original thread: http://www.techsupportforum.com/forums/f10/no-disk-message-564181.html#post3210410 I was referred here to check on my PC's security by following the basic procedure. As I've done it before, I ran a RSIT instead of a DDS.

Summary: When I first look at the computer in the day, there's a skinny Windows message with the blue on top saying that "There is No Disk in the Drive.", then three buttons under it saying "Try Again", "Cancel" and "Continue, and then to the right of those, a big red circle with a big white X. This was after the computer was just sitting on all night, not attached to the Web or anyone using it. And a few months before that, it used to be McAfee giving a Window to "Archive Data" onto disks. The disk drive seems to be fine and there's no file name or anything mentioned in the message, so it seems odd.

Hi, I've tried a lot of things but nothing is working, I would greatly appreciate any help. About two months ago a blue screen would come up and then shut my computer down, which I've been able to work around. Now, not sure if it's connected, but it's not reading my cd drive (won't eject or read it in my burner), disk defragmenter says "Disk Defragmenter could not start", and check disk says "Windows was unable to complete the disk check." I've tried some things I've found on the web including running check disk from cmd which ran but didn't change anything; the volume came back not dirty, and I checked the logical manager and all in the services section. Thank you for your time.

As of late my PC has been going very slow, stuttering, freezing for a minute occasionally, and sometimes when I restart I get a disk read error that requires me to turn the PC off and on again. I ran check disk using command prompt, it got to 12% before it said it had found corrupt files, now it gets up to 37% verification before it finds corrupt files but cannot repair them.

I tried running system repair from the windows 7 disk, but it fails. I've used western digital to run tests on my hard drive, but there were no problems found.

dont know how to fix this now, i've been told its probably the hard drive failing but the scan says otherwise. I can really tell how it takes a lot longer to boot up, log in, even open internet browser takes a lot longer than before.

help appreciated

Are you running the Western Digital Data Lifeguard CD ISO (extract first) burned to CD using WIndows Image burner, then booted to run the Extended Scan? This should give you a definitive diagnosis of the HD, which appears from the Disk CHeck to be failing.

If the HD checks out I would do is try a perfect test Clean Reinstall to the same or another HD to know for sure.

Hello!

So I recently installed Windows 7 Home Premium on an Acer Aspire 5349. I've been having a bunch of issues with it since the install.

Firstly, When I boot, it takes me to the "Disk Check" screen and tells me that one of my disks needs to be checked for consistency. However, the disk in question isn't something like "C:" or "D:" it's "\\?\volume{c4afec15-cb60-11e4-9583-806e6f6e6963}". The disk check also automatically cancels. It doesn't prompt me with the usual " Press any button to stop the disk check" option, just straight to " Disk check has been cancelled"

When I eventually get to the desktop, I get the screen " Windows detected a hard disk problem ". I look at the details and I'm told that my C:\ drive has been reporting failures. When I check the status of the disk via the Disk Management tool I'm told that all my partitions are healthy.

When I actually use the laptop, it's very slow and frequently freezes. It takes a while to catch back up and sometimes these freezes lead to a BSOD. The BSOD message was KERNEL_DATA_INPAGE_ERROR. I checked the event viewer and it also seemed that before certain crashes I would have driver controller error on an IDE Port. I've attached a picture of the disk check screen, event viewer, and memory dump. I apologize about the quality of the pictures, I couldn't screenshot the images on the actual laptop as it was freezing and crashing too often.

Hi everyone.

Going crazy with this. So about 2 weeks ago, my "intel rapid storage technology" software gave me an error. I opened it and saw that one of the disks (2 disk array) in my Raid 0 array, had an error. I reset it back to normal and left it. Then I started to get pop ups saying that files were corrupt over the course of the next few days. My OS still worked and everything worked as usual, except my sound card. I have no more sound from anything plugged into the jacks, only USB connected audio works.

So, I attempted to run a check disk to fix said errors, but I get a message that the drive is not accessible due to a recent software package install "error 766f6c756d652e63 3f1". I went into my system restore and all restore points are gone, except one. When I click on it, it says the drive is not accessible.

Today, I installed 2 new 1TB hybrid drives in another Raid 0 volume (yes I know...but that's what I am using for now). When I went to write the system image, it said the disk had errors and to run a check disk first......which I can not.. I clicked ignore and let it go and write the system image with the errors. When it is done, do you think that I will be able to run a check disk on the new drives (2nd array, since it will not be inaccessible) to repair the errors that it wrote from the bad disk?

I am not sure where to go from here. My PC is still up and running and almost finished copying the image to the two new drives. My hopes are th... Read more

Computer -> Right Click Hard Drive -> Click Properties -> Click Tools.

From there I get the Disk Check option. However After opening the file it does not run. No matter what is or is not checked the file will not run.

The program instantly closes out. Even when I try to set it so that it will run on the next start up. The file will close out without showing the confirmation box.

Now, when I do restart I go to my log in page, but not until after seeing a page for a brief moment, it looks like the page you see after completeing a disk check at start up.

Used the windows install DVD to check for errors in windows and to see if anything needed repairing, came back as everything was fine.

Any help is appreciated.

Hey Guys,
I've been pulling my hair out trying to figure out what my problem is. Basically, we had an issue with the computer and so we force restarted it at one point about a month ago. After that, we started getting requests to run a check disk after every time the computer was rebooted. The check disks take 20+ hours for some reason on this computer, and we cannot afford to have it down that long since it is a work computer. We cancelled the disk check and afterwards we noticed that the hard drive was filling itself up. The computer has a 450gb hard drive and after a couple of hours it was telling us that there were only 2mb of space left (we have maybe 20gb of data on the computer total). This is the point in which I stepped in and ran a disk cleanup and deleted all of the old system restore points. It gave us about a gb of space so I left it alone (I didn't realize at this point what the problem was, just thought it was too much stuff on the comp). The next day the computer's user told me it was the same problem and I knew that she wasn't using all of the space that I had found so I checked it out again. Once again, it was giving me the low disk space error. I decided to download and install Windirstat to see what was taking up all the space. When I run Windirstat, it tells me that 430gb of the 450gb of space is "Unknown". After that, I shut it down and let it run the check disk completely over the course of a weekend. It ran for about a week after... Read more

A:Windows 7 No Disk Space after Disk Check Cancellation

Likely the file system was messed up by the forced restart, a rare but possible occurence.

So the unknown used space may be failed attempts to copy data over to repair the file system. This is why it's always advised to back up data before doing a Disk Check and of course data should always be backed up anyway against HD failure - which itself cannot be ruled out here.

I would test the HD with the maker's HD Diagnostic extended CD scan, followed by a Disk Check done from the Win7 disk or Repair CD's System Recovery Options Command Line which doesn't depend upon the OS on a potentially scrambled file system.

Click the link in my signature and under step 4 download the zip file and extract the shortcuts.

When you click them they open a cmd window, dont close that window. Be patient that window will dissapear by itself. These advanced shortcuts are the best free defraggers there are. To get better you would need to buy something like PerfectDisk, so dont bother with defraggler etc...

EDIT: forgot to say to get checkdisk to work, click on the vista start orb and type regedit in the search field and hit enter. Next navigate to this key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Man

On the right hand pane you should see BootExecute right click on it and select Modify then past this in:

Hey guys.

My disk defrag and Check disk are not working.

I can bring up both programs, but when I attempt to either Analyze, Defrag, or Start Scan, respectively, a error pops up, saying "Windows was unable to complete the disk check" and "Disk Defragmenter does not start"

I don't believe it is virus-related as I have ran the Malwarebytes program and nothing has come up. I also ran Trend Micro and nothing has popped up either.

I also wonder if it has anything do with my MP3 issue.

Error: "There is no disk in the drive. Please insert a disk into drive \Device\Harddisk4\DR5"

The situation is this. I have an old program that came entirely on CDs. You can load the program on your hard drive, but it's constantly asking you to insert CD's to read portions of the program. I had a computer that I got it to work on, by loading the program on the Hard drive, and then fooled it into reading a flash drive that has all the content of the extra 7 disks.

I just got a new computer, and that solution is not working. The software won't recognize the flash drive no matter which USB slot I put it in. The software is no longer supported. It runs, but only if I insert the CDs. No matter where I put the
disk, it's not recognized, even if I change the drive letter to what the initial installation came from.

I know it's an odd question, but it's driving me nuts.

Hi

Try to connect HDD to other PC as external one. Maybe you will be able to rescue some data. Other way you can try to check HDD using sector repair tool. One of them is HDD regenerator.

Maybe after doing this you will be able to start OS again. I have had similar problem. HDD Regenerator will not repair HDD but it can be used again.

In my opinion you don?t need any special HDD and I also think that you should be able to use 100GB one. You can order it by service partner in your country or take old one in pc store and talk with your local dealer. He will advice you what to do.

If so, You can not do it whilst windows is booted. Unless it's not the primary OS drive.

I am not sure if this means anything but in the bios the IDE Channel 0 Master says none and when I try to turn on auto detection it wont detect a hard drive.

The HDD is fully connected and has not been touched since I installed it a month ago.

I have this awful feeling that I fried the HDD when I defragmented it last night.

Even after waiting a long time, it will not start working, so I have done 2 things--either turned it off with the on'off button or unplugging it for a few minutes. When it comes back on, a black screen with white letters, it has a message: Bad Check SUM (CMOS). Check system, then press the F1 key. Then there is almost a whole page of writing, again black screen with white letters. So I take the cursor and start it at the to, then with the arrow take it down both columns. Then it says to press End, I believe, to save my changes (but I haven't made any changes), then I do that and it comes up with a Y or N to check about really wanting to save it. I'm sure there's something I need to keep it from doing this, but my computer knowledge is limited . Then when that screen comes up, that I just click down, I don't change anything. Thank you in advance for any help you might could give me on any of this.

Hi... A week ago, I ran Check Disk on my old, corrupted hard-drive to see if it could help me access anything left on it. (physically, a different hard-drive than my system. its five years old)

While still in Windows, I left it overnight.
I rebooted later and it started another scan before windows booted. I let it be.
Thankfully, things are a bit better since the scan.
But now it tries scanning before loading Windows all the time.
I like to turn my comp on in the morning, and go do things while it loads. I dont want to stand around to 'press any key' to cancel the scan.

How do I get this to stop? There wasn't even a visible option to scan at boot to begin with.

Also, what is the longevity of an average hard-drive? (I always end up with a Maxtor)
Should I buy a new one every five years?
My old drive likes to tell me 'the disk in drive F isnt formatted..." all the time.
But thats getting off this topic...

Thanks
 

A:Check Disk won't go away

It won't stop because it keeps detecting problems on the drive. If you really want it to stop pull the drive out.

I'm having trouble getting the disk check tool to run on a laptop with Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit. Whenever I schedule a disk check and restart the computer, absolutely nothing happens -- my system simply boots up as it normally does.

I ran the system file checker when I first encountered the problem; it told me that it couldn't fix all issues, and upon checking the log there is a problem with the autochk.exe system file. I found this Microsoft hotfix and tried to install it, but received a message that said "This update does not apply to your computer." I can't run a system restore to fix the problem because it's been over a year since I last checked the disk successfully, so the restore point that I need is almost certainly long gone. I also cannot perform a system repair because my computer manufacturer did not ship a Windows 7 installation CD with the laptop. I can revert my computer to it's original factory state, but as far as I know I can't simply repair system files, and I do not have a Windows 7 disk from which extract a new autochk.exe file.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

A:Disk Check Won't Run

Hello IHeartRocks, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You might see if downloading and running the 64-bit (x64) System Update Readiness Tool, restart the PC afterwards, and try the sfc /scannow command again may be able to repair it.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

hey guys, just this morning this started happening to my computer. nothing really set it off (that i know of).

i turn the computer on and it gives me a variety of things to choose from. Safe Mode, Safe Mode with Networking, Safe Mode with Control Prompt, Last Configured System or Start Windows Normally.

with any of these choices i'm directed to the blue-screen disk check. if i skip it or let it go i get the same result, a black screen with my curser frozen and an annoying high-pitched continual beep.

anyone know what this is or how it could be fixed?

Check disk won't run due to a recent software installation.
How do I correct this. iI don't want to do a restore

A:Check disk

Hi, when you attempt to run chkdsk what error message do you receive? What software were you installing and did it install OK?

Go to start, search and type:- cmd, right click on the returned cmd.exe and select "run as administrator" at the prompt (copy paste) :-


Code:
reg query "HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager" /v BootExecute /s > 0 & notepad 0
press enter

Please post the notepad entry here.

Is there a way to run a check disk if xp will not work? I had a system that started to give me strange error messages. I mean they were very odd. The last error that came up, said that I did not have a valid copy of xp and would not let me login to the PC. I even tried to login in safe mode, but that did not work. How would I go about fixing this?

Well I'm back. Once again, I plead for help...

Another strange thing is happening......Had a problem with my Bell Security Manager, it showed as being corrupt and unreadable...Said to run ChkDsk Utility.

As for Bell Security Manager I removed it from system.

So, I ran the ChkDsk Utility. Said it would run disk check at startup....Restarted computer....Disk check started and then cancelled itself....Tried again, same result.

So, can't get disk check to run to completion...

Then I decided to try this:

Go to MY COMPUTER
right click local disk, which is "C"
to Properties
to Tools
to Error Checking
check Now box
check on Automatically fix file systems errors
Hit Start

At completion restart computer and got same result.....Begins disk check and cancels itself.

I am sitting at the computer, scratching my head and moaning....It is not a pretty sight.

Please, any ideas?

Much Thanks....

A:Disk Check

Bad hard drive would be my guess...it takes a lot to prevent chkdsk from running when proper commands are used. You did it properly.I would move all data files from the hard drive as soon as possible...and then download a diagnostic from the HD manufacturer's website...and run it on that drive, after I had backed up all the files I wanted from the current install.I'd also take a look in Event Viewer and see if there are any errors recognized which mention any drive in the system.What is the Event Viewer, and Should I Care - Ask Leo! - http://ask-leo.com/what_is_the_event_viewe...uld_i_care.html Louis

Hi, have you tried repeatedly pressing F8 on boot?

This will hopefully give you a list of all possible boot options including Safe Mode.

If you can get in to Safe Mode, I would recommend trying a repair install and see if that helps in stopping Disk Check.

I wish you all the best of luck.

I am trying to run a check disk to check for errors before I send a hijack this log per your site instructions.

Everytime I try to run one, it tells me that the files are in use and would I like it to run next time I restart. I said yes. Then it restarts, says a check disk has been scheduled, the check disk has been cancelled, windows has finished checking the disk.

I tried to run from safe mode with command prompt, and also by pressing f8 at start up and running through the command prompt but it says again that the files are in use and do I want to run next time I restart. I say yes, and it does the same thing and cancels the check disk. I have also tried to run it bo going to computer, OS © properties, does the same thing.

I cannot seem to figure out how to get it to run and not keep cancelling itself.

I running Vista Home Premium (as much as I hate it..... GGRRRRR!) 32 bit operating system.

Bleeping computer is right! This bleeping think is making me crazy.:-)

Thanks for any help you can give me.

A:Cannot run check disk

Chkdsk requires exclusive access to a volume when it runs. Therefore, if one or more of the files are open on the disk that you want to check, Chkdsk displays a prompt asking if you want schedule the disk check for the next time that you restart your computer.If you're infected, it might possibly be that the infection is not letting you run chkdskOpen Task Manager and in the applications window, end all tasks. Then start a new task and type explorer.exeSee if you can run it thenIf not, you might have to go ahead and run the HJT/DDS scan anyways

I have Vista Home Premium, 32 Bit O/s. A few weeks ago, the computer started doing a complete Check Disk everytime I boot up. It says to hit any key within 10 seconds to stop the process, but no key will stop it. It takes over an hour to complete!!!!!!!

How can I stop the Check Disk from starting each time I start the computer?

You may have a problem, but not chkdsk. Your hard drive may be getting ready to die. Back up everything, then take this test.
