Hi, my new laptop runs vista but my desktop runs XP. I know this is a Visya
community but can anyone tell me why all of a sudden everytime i am booting
up on my XP desktop it says " a disk check has been scheduled, windows will
now check disk" This process takes hours. how do I get my desktop to boot
normally? Thank You.

Hi Grant,

I'm pretty sure that this is the same in XP as it is in Vista. You can use Step One in this tutorial to reset chkdsk to stop it from trying to run everytime you boot.

Go to safe mode and open the command prompt and type the following:

"chkdsk c: /f /x" --> When asked to force a dismount select Y

Check disk should now start automatically.

and repeat the process for d:,e:,f: ... etc

I know that this command "chkdsk c: /f /x" will prevent disk check at every boot. Disk check will run only once and disabled at every boot;).
You still don't get it. He does not want disk check to run at all, not even the first time. Grant said " The process takes hours." He does not want it.
