So recently one morning i turned on my computer and it was fine looked normal up until it said Checking Drive C for Consistency and i googled it and found out that this happens when you turn of your computer just by pressing down on the on button and thats exactly what i did the night before . so i know that caused that to happen but i also read that after it does that once it shoudnt do it the next time you turn on your computer but anyways i just let it check and it logged on normally so i thought everything was fine, then the next morning i turned on my computer it did the same thing but this time when i turned on the computer the first start up screen which is a blue HP screen had all these multi colored lines going horizontally and its weird. so i turned it off cause i have no idea what just happen but it happen again but to the other screens so after 3 or 4 times i finally stopped doig that then it started checking the drive C again and so i was confused cause i thought it wasntt suppose to do that anymore , so i skipped it but anytime i do that the computer will start up and go to my account and then just crash . ALso sometimes when its checking the Drive itll just turn into a blank screen with blue pixels going across the screen. Also sometimes when i turn it back on after turning it off because of something going wrong itll say that i should put in this CD so the computer can fix the problems and i dont have it so i just try starting it up normally.

I download Sims 3 and was previously playing it before turning it off the incorrect way and during the check up for DRIVE C itll mention something about sims and having to delete it or whatever and im gonna try deleteing sims to see if that will help because when it crashes the blue error screen wil say a softwarre or hardware might not have been installed carefully

But my problem is how do i get rid of that color thing happening during the start up and the checking the drive C too . im so confused and i dont know much about computers so can u keep it simple so i can understand!:C
Thanks !!

Hello and welcome to Bleepingcomputer.

The problem with your computer is you have corrupted some files.

This happens when you shut your computer down the wrong way, the files are removed form the hard drive and become stored in your RAM, RAM is a temporary storage that loses the information it has stored once the computer is shut down improperly.
Normally when the computer is shut down correctly, these files are safely sent back to the hard drive where they are stored permanently.

When a computer is shut down incorrectly, the files that are actively stored in RAM are lost for ever.

When enough files are lost that are needed for the computer to operate normally, it starts running a check disk utility in an attempt to recover the lost files.

Sometimes this is possible and sometimes it requires a little bit more help to accomplish this task.

If you can get your computer to start up and choose command prompt, you can run the system file checker utility, which scans and repairs corrupted files.

To do this, boot up your computer and press the F8 key at the windows splash screen, choose load windows with command prompt.

At the command prompt, type the following bold text. SFC /SCANNOW Please notice there is a space between the SFC and the forward slash /

This should scan your OS files for corruption and attempt to fix the errors.

I realize you said you do not have an OS disk, using any Vista install disk from a friend should work if a Vista OS disk is needed.

Here is how you can get to command prompt from with-in windows.

Click the START button.

In the empty search field type CMD

You should see cmd.exe in the list.

Right click it and choose Run as administrator.

When the CMD window appears, where the cursor blinks, type the following bold text.

SFC /SCANNOW Please notice there is a space between the SFC and the forward slash, you must have that space in the text.

After you type that text, hit the enter key and allow it to check your system for corrupted system files and repair those that it finds.
