"One of your disks needs to be checked for consistency" followed by freeze on startup - HELP
"Checking File System on C:
The type of the file system is NTSF.
One of your discs needs to be checked for consistency. You may cancel the check, but it is strongly recommended that you continue.
To skip disk checking, press any key within X second(s)."
I have no idea why it's doing this. The real problem right now is that when the seconds counter gets to 1 it just freezes, never actually going through with a check. If I press a key, the countdown continues and it still freezes at 1. If I press a key several times, it freezes at whatever number it's at when I press the key several times. So far I haven't been able to do anything but do a hard reboot and face the same problem again. I've reset BIOS settings to factory settings.
Like I said, the machine is only 1 year old (Lenovo Ideapad Y450). From time to time I have noticed random blue screens, though. Is it possible that the HDD could have died already??
