Scanning and repairing drive C - Stuck loading

  JamesAH 13:57 10 Jan 15

Since today, every time I power on my laptop, the message "Scanning and repairing drive C - x%" comes up.

Looking up the issue online I was able to bypass it by spamming the space key before the scan starts to access Windows.

I'm wondering if this is a hard drive issue, because I've had this problem once before with this laptop and the hard drive failed and I had to sent it in for repair, and if there's anything I can do to fix it or more tests to see what exactly the issue is?

With a guide here, I found out how to stop the loop, but typing 'fsutil dirty query c:' into the command prompt I got: 'Volume -c: is Dirty'.

start in safe mode :

To disable CHKDSK from starting up is use the /x switch on chkntfs command in command prompt.

The /x switch will exclude a drive from the default boot-time check.

the command to disable chkdsk from scanning C: drive would be

chkntfs /x c:

If you have 2 drive, C and D, you can disable chkdsk with the command below

chkntfs /x c: d:

then reboot
