Scanning and Repairing C Drive

HP Recommended

Hi Guys!

So I love my HP Envy laptop, it's got all the power I need for the stuff I need. I was just exiting my flight simulator (FWIW Flight Simulator 2004) and the screen went black, and didn't come up with a little spinning disc, as when it had done so before, it did. I powered off via the power switch, and currently (as this is being wrote) my laptop is 'scanning and repairing drive (c:)'. I know this is something quite bad, but can anyone elaborate on why this is happening? It hasn't done it more than once, I am leaving it do do its stuff. I just would like an answer as to why it has done this? Last time it crashed, I successfully booted back up again, albeit a little slower

Thanks in advance
Alex

I have several systems that run Win10 and before a made a change (described below) I used to run into this problem all the time.

 

Win10 comes with a new hibernation process enabled BY DEFAULT. This is known as Fast Startup -- which is not to be confused with Fast Boot, which is different.

 

With this enabled, you can frequently be forced into running CHKDSK to clean up filesystem problems.

 

The solution is to DISABLE this -- and the instructions are below ...

 

There are two ways to disable FastStartup in Win8/10; (1) through the Control Panel, and (2) through an elevated command prompt.

Control Panel - Open Control Panel --> Power Options.
Select "Choose what the power buttons do"
Select "Change settings that are currently unavailable"
At the bottom of the Window, under Shutdown settings, uncheck the box regarding fast startup

Elevated command prompt - run the following command:
REG ADD "HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Power" /V HiberbootEnabled /T REG_dWORD /D 0 /F

In both cases, reboot Windows.

NOW, FastStartup is disabled.
