Approximately three weeks ago I purchased a new hp laptop that came with Windows 7 installed. This morning when I turned it on and stepped out of the room I was greeted by the following message: checking file system on C: The type of the file system is NTFS. One of your disks needs to be checked for consistency. Eventually it went through the 3 stages and checked my disks, but I'm unsure as to why a brand new laptop and OS would need to be running something like this so early in the game. The computer was not shut off improperly, and I cannot think of any other reason why this would need to run. Help please?
