Sometimes when i start my computer, instead of the usual windows loading screen, it goes to a blue windows screen that does something with my hard drive. I managed to get this text from the computer when this happens:

Checking file system on E:
The type of the file system is FAT.

The volume is dirty.
Volume Serial Number is 3B69-1AFD
Windows has checked the file system and found no problems.

1023541248 bytes total disk space.
4718592 bytes in 44 hidden files.
131072 bytes in 8 folders.
20824064 bytes in 26 files.
997867520 bytes available on disk.

16384 bytes in each allocation unit.
62472 total allocation units on disk.
60905 allocation units available on disk.

Then my computer works super fast, but is there a way to do this myself insrtead of automatically?

Right click on the drive in My Computer and click Properties then the Tools tab. Click the Check Now button for Error Checking. Check the box for Automatically fix file system errors and click the Start button. A warning will pop up stating that the Disk Check cannot be run unless the computer is restarted. Click Yes then reboot the computer.

Are you by chance booting with a flash drive plugged into your system?

If the screen comes up on every boot, your disk has not fixed the marking of the volume as dirty. AFAIK the only way to fix this is to run chkdsk /f /r from the Run dialog. Here's a link that may help also:
