Hello glendandavid,

Is the system able to load windows at the moment? Do you have the technical information from the blue screen error messages that you are receiving?

Hello glendandavid,

Lets check to see if we can stop chkdsk from running on every boot.

Click Start, then Run, type cmd, and click "Ok". At the prompt in the command window that opens, type fsutil dirty query ?: and press "Enter". (Where ? is the letter of the drive to queried)

Does the result of this indicate the drive is "Dirty"?

Hello glendandavid,

There should not be any popup. If you follow the directions I gave you it should open a new program.
