What kind of repair?

Please post back a screenshot of your maximized Disk Management drive map with listings, using Snipping Tool in Start Menu, so we can look over the Disk Configuration to see if anything is incorrect.

Sometimes proactively running Startup Repair from DVD or Repair CD System Recovery Options can stop the Repair from auto-starting. You may also have the results of the tests run or other clues to an ongoing problem in your logs which can be accessed using these troubleshooting steps.
