at startup i have a black screen with "checking file system on C: the type of file system is NTFS. One of your disks needs to be checked for consistency. ...." this seems to pop up every time I transfer picures from my camera ( not totally sure, maybe coincidence) can you help me reconfigure something to make it stop. I know how to run the disk check but its getting to be a pain.

Run hard drive diagnostics: http://www.tacktech.com/display.cfm?ttid=287 (or http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic28744.html)
Make sure, you select tool, which is appropriate for the brand of your hard drive.
Depending on the program, it'll create bootable floppy, or bootable CD.
If downloaded file is of .iso type, use ImgBurn: http://www.imgburn.com/ to burn .iso file to a CD (select "Write image file to disc" option), and make the CD bootable.

NOTE. If your hard drive is made by Toshiba, unfortunately, you're out of luck, because Toshiba doesn't provide any diagnostic tool.

Is it asking to check the hard drive or the sd card for your camera?

neither... all it says on the screen is...." checking file system on C: The type of file system is NTFS. ONe of your disks needs to be checked for consistency. You may cancel the disk check but it is strongly recomended that you continue. To skip disk checking press any key within 10 seconds." now if I press a key, sometimes it lets windows run. Sometimes not. It wont let me do anything. I get frustrated enough , pull the battery ( laptop) then keep messing and get it running. If I go into start> computer > right click on C drive and ........blah , blah , blah run disk check, that fixesa it for a while. Then the next time i do pictures, shut it down and start it in the A.M. then it does it again. I know it must be a setting i neeed to do just cant figure out what it is.

is the camera or its memory card in the slot when you are rebooting .if it is then remove it before turning on the laptop .
i would put the camera /card in laptop after a successful boot up and right click on its icon in computer and go properties /tools and do a check disk of the card

no camera , cable , or card are nowhere around when this happens. It works great after downloading pics. Its after its shut down and then started up the next morning. It may have nothing to do with the camera. I'm just having a theory here, could be way off base. Is there a way to schedule a regular disk check to run when I'm not on my pc.

O.K. wnt back and reread your post ( after I had my coffee) now I got it ! Went and did a check disk on my camera card, said it was fine-no errors. Good to know. Could it be that when I'm downloading my pics sometimes it comes up where a picture or two cant be downloaded. Says the file is corrupt, to skip. I say sure. so some pics are not on there but maybe it screws up the storage. What can I do.
