explain this check disc symptom and solution
Posted on 2011-02-26
An Uncle's computer began to do a chk disc, on every boot.
It completed the check in 15-20 seconds and booted normally.
A local repair shop said such a symptom is pointing toward a hard drive problem.
The grandson has his own computer shop and his findings were:
It was prompting that disk D: needed to be scanned to free up space on the drive. Well there is no disk drive for D. it is just a partition of disk drive C. You know most manufacturers set up a virtual disk drive D on a new machine with certain programs on there. But it is just a partition of disk C. Anyhow, I ran a scan disk just to check for bad sectors, etc. and all seems to be fine. The machine runs great, I think it is just a USER problem.
How does "user" get a chk disc to appear on the screen on bootups?
What was the "user error.?"
