    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
