So everytime i start up my PC, there is a disk checking (:C) happening. Its not doing anything bad as of now but i would still be more comfortable with it being gone. How to get rid of it? Thank you!

Thank you for posting on the HP Support Community.

 

Don't worry as I'll be glad to help, I have a few troubleshooting steps we could try to fix the issue:  

  1. Start the computer.

  2. Use one of the following methods to enter the BIOS Setup utility:

    • If your computer was built in 2006 or later (Windows Vista or later), immediately press the F10 key. You might need to press the key repeatedly, about once every second, until a BIOS Setup utility screen opens.

    • If your computer was built before 2006 (Windows XP or earlier), press the F1 key . You might need to press the key repeatedly, about once every second, until a BIOS Setup utility screen opens.

  3. Use the arrow keys to select a recognized hard disk drive device in the list and press Enter.

  4. Select SMART Support and press Enter.

  5. Select one of the following hard disk drive device tests:

    • SMART Status Check: Checks the status of the hard disk drive SMART status. Displays whether SMART support is enabled or disabled.

    • SMART Short Self-Test: Runs a short self-test on the hard disk drive.

    • SMART Extended Self-Test: Runs an Extended self-test on the hard disk drive. This may take some time.

  6. Press Enter to start the test.

  7. The test begins and the test status displays.

  8. Press Esc when the test is complete.

    CAUTION: If the test fails, copy the data on the hard disk drive and replace the hard disk drive.

Hope this helps! Keep me posted for further assistance.
