opening windows

  ann-199314 16:51 25 Jun 2004

When I turn on my computer I get the Windows Page and then nothing, so I switch it off and then I get a message Checking Files for Consistency and then it gives me a message about Fat 32 and Volume Serial 1A6A 07DD and then I eventually hear the music and the computer switches on. What should I do about this, because it all takes about 5 or more minutes to sort itself out. Thanks if you can help me yet again. Ann

It sounds like the disk checker is running click here

This may be because you have previously switched off instead of Start/Shutdown.

Can you describe the Windows screen that it hangs on - does it have a black or blue background?
