hey guys. I have been having some problems with my Toshiba laptop recently. I formatted it with Windows 7 ultimate 32bit in December of 2010. sometimes on startup it takes me to the boot manager and asks be if I want to boot into widows or the recovery console. and other times it takes me to a black screen that asks me to do a hard drive scan of some sort. this happens only on startup and completely randomly. the scan has happened 3 or 4 times. and the boot manager only a couple. the first time this happened was prolly about a month ago. I don't think it is a virus or anything. I have nod32 installed on the machine, and my browsing habits are very safe. and like I said the machine was formatted not too long ago. nod32 scan came up blank and I'm not experiencing any other strange behaviors. any ideas? thanks!
