Windows 7: One of your disks need to be checked.

One of your disks need to be checked.

Ok.. Now that I turned on my laptop I see this black screen that reads:

"One of your disks needs to be checked for consistency... blah blah"

And says that I can press any key to cancel it... but even if I press ANY key if just continues and stops on "press any key within 1 second(s)" and freezes right there.

I didn't change anything on the computer so this is weird:S

I have that too with build 7100 on my laptop. I was also afraid for a failing disk, but I thouroughly checked the disk with HD Tune and everything was fine.

So I think it must be a some issue with 7. Don't worry, nothing is physically broken.

That's weird. I got this message about 1 in 5 times I start my laptop. I can cancel it, or go through this check, but either way Windows 7 is starting fine afterwards.

Run scandisk with both options set. Windows has set the dirty bit. May or may not be valid warning re: disk or disk sector fail.

This check is there for a reason. Run scandisk.

One of your disks needs to be checked for consistency??
One of your disks needs to be checked for consistency. You may cancel the disk check, but it is strongly recommended that you continue. That appeared when I was starting up my computer, right after I made partitions and formatted them using the Win 7 DVD. Why did this happen? And how can...
