After an overheating incident some time ago, I am bothered by disk check at startup (which never finishes, shuts down pc at 70% or so.) I have to skip it every time before I'm able to log in.
It's starting to annoy me. Is there a way to get rid of it? (Other than buying a new pc)
There are 3 things that might have started this disk check sh*t - 1) overheating, 2.) Faulty battery/power supply 3.) There was a thunderstorm. Laptop itself was unplugged but network cable was connected and router was on.

Did you ever let it complete? If not, then restart your computer and let it finish. This fixes it 95% of the time.

If you have or it doesn't, click start-> right-click computer -> manage -> task scheduler. You should be able to see disk check as a scheduled process. From there you can delete it.

Let chkdsk finish. If chkdsk is finished and repeats the next time, system restarts, your HDD is failing and need to
change a new HDD.

It never finishes. At stage 3, the computer just shuts down.
Well, thanks.
I guess, I'd better start backing up important files.
