I am running Windows Me on an Intel 815eea Mother Board. Over 50% of the time when I boot up I get Scandisk and the message that I did not shut down properly. If I only use the system for a short time and don't play any games, before I shut down, it will start normally. If I leave the system on for several hours OR if I play any games, the next time I turn it on there is a 70% chance it will start with Scandisk.
Does anyone have any thought on this?
Not sure whats causing it, but you can stop it ever showing its ugly head again:
Click START/RUN, trype MSCONFIG then click OK, once system configuration opens, click ADVANCED, and the put a tick in where it says "disable scandisk after bad shutdown", click OK, OK, then restart when prompted.
You should then never see scandisk again. However if you shutdown incorrectly, be sure to run scandisk- in fact run it on a regular basis anyway.
