Disk Defrag problem

By kathemmi
Jan 9, 2010
  1. Using XP on a HP Compaq laptop
    Get a blue screen at start up with the message Autochk not found. After this message system runs fine.
    However when running defrag. the message come up: "disk defragmenter has detected that Chkdsck is scheduled to run on the volume: (c). Please run Chkdsk /f."
    This will not run so I can't defrag.
    Any ideas anyone?
