Backup your important stuff. Might be a hard drive issue.

Download a free copy of HDTune. You can then take a look at the S.M.A.R.T. data stored on the HDD, and see if the HDD is having problems. You can also run an error check on the drive.

Make sure your SATA data and power cables are securely fastened. If they are loose and anything that can bump your computer can cause CHKDSK to run at boot.

In HD tune, there is a tab for "Health". This will pull the S.M.A.R.T. (Self-Monitoring, Analysis, and Reporting Technology) info off the HDD. This info is data the HDD logs into firmware if the HDD encounters an error. Any problem areas will be flagged on this tab.

That usually means that the drive is not really having a problem.

Check the SATA cable on both your Mobo, and back of the drive to ensure they are well seated and not loose.

windows places a flag on Checkdisk if it feels the disk needs to be checked on boot.

Run checkdisk manually by right clicking on your drive, selecting properties. Go to the tools tab and select check now under harddrive checking. Accept the UAC prompt. Make sure that "automatically fix errors" is checked in the next dialog box. leave the box un-checked to attempt bad sector recovery. It shouldn't be necessary and takes a long time. select OK. The computer will tell you it can't be done, and will ask to schedule a check on next boot. Tell it OK, and reboot your computer. Let it go through the entire process. That should clear the registry flag for check disk. If that doesn't clear the flag, post back, and I'll tell you how to clear the flag manually.
