    We recently had a power supply blow which zapped a motherboard , processor or both.

    I didn't have much time so I used all the good parts from this box, including the HDD, with a new case, mother board and processor. Of course, I had to revalidate Windows and now everything works fine except:

    Every time the computer starts, Windows insists on running chkdisk.

    I am sure that the disk is OK and it is just the fact that it is the old disk running a new processor and motherboard. Is there any way that I can stop this happening every time we start the computer?

    Cheers, Geoff

    The faulty PSU may have damaged the hard drive. You could try running a checkdisk with the more thorough r switch from a boot disk.

    Try this, shamelessly reprinted from another website:

    1. click on your start menu and open the run dialogue.
    2. type cmd and press Enter
    3. Next type fsutil dirty query c: (assuming the drive is c:!)
    4. If the return message indicates that the volume is dirty go to step 5
    5. Next type chkdsk c: /f /x and press Enter
    6. After that finishes repeat step 3.
    7. If it is no longer dirty then reboot and you should notice no more chkdsks

    Time prevents everything happening all at once...
