My laptop has just started behaving slightly weird all on its own. Every time I start up, it does its thing with the blue bar filling up under the windows logo, however, after this it goes to a blue screen and says that it is checking 'c' drive for a fat 32?!? it counts down to let you decide if you want to cancel this or not. If left alone, it checks and finds nothing and then doesnt change from that screen. If cancelled, it will start up to my login page as normal. What the! This is a new laptop and I havent stuffed around with anything on it. This ir totally random. :whistling:
Please can someone tell me what this is all about. I hate when I dont understand what it's doing!!!
Thanks
Melissa

Hi Melissa,

This is a check disk operation - basically your pc thinks it hasn't been shut down correctly - and as a result it is checking file stability. This might take a while (sometimes over night if it needs it) - so it's probably a good idea to start up your laptop before you turn in for the night and let it run to it's conclusion. FAT32 by the way is just your file system - this is sometimes NTFS instead.

As I say let it do it's thing over night and if you have any issues - repost here and i'll assist you.
