When I restart my laptop, it comes up with the normal Windows start up window and then goes to a black screen that comes up with a message that says "The type fo file is NTFS" and that it is checking for consistency. I am not sure what this is or why it is doing it, it never use to do it before. How can I fix it?

From within Windows...Start/Run...type chkdsk /r (space between k and /) and hit Enter. Type Y in new screen and hit Enter.

Reboot the system...the command will run...system will boot into Windows when check is over.
