    PC scanning and repairing on cold boot after power is disconnected


    Hi all,

    I've bought a new PC and I've noticed that whenever the power is disconnected when it's off it does the scanning and repairing thing when I turn it back on again. This is if I turn it off at the plug, or the few power cuts I've had while I've had it. I'm fairly certain I've been turning it off properly, I was just wondering if this is something anybody has heard about before and if I should worry about it.


    Thanks!

    Hi Speckled Jim. Welcome to the TenForums @Speckled Jim

    How are you turning it off properly, that is how are you shutting down?

    Are you shutting down via the desktop's on/off button (forced shutdown - not recommended) or via shutdown (start button>Power>shutdown)?
    If you force shutdown it may affect the hard drive if it is writing to it so will run a repair at startup.
    If it's doing this after correctly shutting down & unplugging the device then no that doesn't sound right.

    I always switch it off via the start menu. This is not something that happens all the time - only when it's switched off at the plug when it's powered down. And it's definitely shut down that i press on the start menu, not sleep !

    Thanks for your help!

    Thanks.

    Some folks do you power button but they have deliberately set an "Action" in the Advance Power setting. One of my machines I set to Sleep.

    I wonder if this is somehow tied to either a BIOS Fast Start Option or Windows Fast StartUp.

    As a really quick test for Windows Fast Startup you could disable hibernation which will disable Windows Fast StartUp.

    to a command prompt(admin) type

    powercfg -h off

    To turn it back on replace the word off with on in the command above. With it disabled you could try shutting off at plug and seeing if computer displays same behaviour.

    Do you mind sharing make model of device?

    This happens on my desktop PC occasionally and I can't work out why. I usually just turn off the mains power then restart and all is OK. I sometimes use Autoruns to check there are no missing files waiting to run on startup and delete those. Also run chkdsk on your system drive e.g. chkdsk c: /spotfix

    A new PC should not have any disk or drive problems.
    Is the computer still under warranty?
    What troubleshooting steps have your already made?
    Have you done a drive SMART test?
    Have you ran chkdsk /x /f or chkdsk /x /r ?
    Open administrative command and type: fsutil dirty query C:
    Please post the results into the thread.
    If you have already ran chkdsk /x /f /r the results can be checked in the event.vwr
    Read Chkdsk Log in Event Viewer in Windows 10 Windows 10 Performance Maintenance Tutorials

    Please post information about your computer specs: Make, model, drives etc.

    If enabled, try turning off Windows 10 Fast Startup as a test. Turn On or Off Fast Startup in Windows 10

    Hi again. My specs are below:

    INTEL CORE I7 7700 OEM
    MSI Z270 GAMING PRO CARBON DDR4 LGA1151
    DDR4 16GB 3000MHZ CORSAIR VENGEANCE LPX BLACK [CMK16GX4M2B3000C15]
    SAMSUNG SOLID STATE DRIVE 2.5" 250GB MLC SATA III EVO SERIES
    SEAGATE 2TB SATAIII 64MB ST2000DM006
    CORSAIR PSU 600W BUILDER SERIES CX600 CP-9020048-UK

    (That's all I thought could be relevant, anyway - if you need all of it, let me know)

    I ran chkdsk. Here are the results:

    The DM log collector will collect in addition to any bsod dump files: msinfo32, dxdiag, event.vwr, etc.
    Please post a zip so we can troubleshoot the logs.
