message upon opening

I'm on XP. I got a strange message when I opened my computer this morning.

One of your disks needs to be checked for consistency. The type of file system on the C drive is NTFS. After it completed the check, it didn't open. I had to turn off the electricity to get it to open and reboot.

Anyone know what this is all about? Thanks

an incorrect or forced shutdown can trigger the disk-check, and if that's the case there's usuall nothing to worry about.

If it happens again there may be one of several causes, so see what happens, and let us know if you need further help.
