    Last week a monkey got in to my study and caused quite mess. I shot at it but missed but it was enough to scare it out of the window again. As it went out it run on my keyboard. I don't know what buttons got pressed but the computer restart. Now every time I turn PC on it wants to check my Z: Drive. Each time there is no problem but it will not stop this each time.

    What can I do to stop this checking each time?

    LOL, good story bro.

    Does the computer boot?
    Does the "z:" drive show up in my computer?
    Do you actually use a z: drive?

    The z: drive is a 250gb WD that I use for storing MP3 pictures and videos. Yes the PC boots fine if I don't skip the check it's very quick and it reports no problem as far as i can see. named it Z: just for fun I dont have 25 other drives. I did change the drive letter back to E: but made no differance.

    Scedule another scandisk on that drive and let it scan it 1 more time and see if it goes away after a sceduled scandisk.

    i had this same irritating problem lately..i just disabled auto chkcdisk and problem solved :)

    taken from:

    http://www.raymond.cc/blog/archives/2008/02/23/disable-or-stop-auto-chkdsk-during-windows-startup/

    "There are some people suggested to edit the registry but the proper way to disable CHKDSK from starting up is using the /x switch on chkntfs command in command prompt.

    ( go to Run and type CMD and press enter ).

    The /x switch will exclude a drive from the default boot-time check. If you have drive C: as your hard drive, then 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:

    "

    worked for me
