Light Blue screen on startup saying "checking disks . . . "

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
For some reason when I started up my computer today, out of nowhere, this light blue screen came up saying that it had to check one of my disks or something. It was a windows xp screen and I think I've seen it before, but I didn't know how to get out of it after it checked my disk, I pressed many different buttons but nothing happened.
Anyway I hit the restart button on my case and it booted up normally and then when it would come up to the "users" screen (where you choose your user and password), the screen went blank instead of showing the users and kind of stayed there. So I rebooted the normal way (not using reset button) and after everything instead this time it got to the black screen where it tells you that windows had booted up incorrectly last time, and asked me if I'd like to boot it in safe mode, normal mode, or last working connection. I chose last working connection and then it booted up fine . . . . .

It could be an indecation of hard disk failure. (Download if you don't have it and) run SpeedFan then click the S.M.A.R.T. tab and select your HDD from the list. Run the online test to see if anything interesting turns up.

ok I just did it all and it said everything was pretty good, actually gave me a 96% for both fitness and performance of my harddrive . . . . so now I really wonder why that "checking disk" screen came up . . .

Windows scans your disk if it didn't boot or shut down properly to make sure no system files were lost or damaged.
