Question about Computers & Internet
I got home from work and noticed my computer was off. I have replaced the power supply and now when my Windows XP reboots I get a screen saying it is checking disc for problems what should I do?
Let it check the disk for problems.

Let the scan disk run. It's typical for this to happen when Windows didn't shut down properly. It's making sure that the hard drive in your computer is working properly. The bigger the drive, the longer it takes.

Tips for a great answer:
To run the check disk utility you will need a repair disc or
a operating system disc. Put the disc in the cd drive and boot from
it. You want to get to the Dos Command Prompt (Black screen with white
letters) and type the following command: chkdsk /r
Check disk will run well over an hour or two and you will notice the percentages going from high to low, this is normal. Let it run to completion. Then reboot machine.
If check disk fails to solve your problem you might have to reinstall windows. Try doing a Repair Install that way you don't loose your data, documents, music, pictures, videos or programs.
In windows xp you get to the dos command prompt by selecting R for repair when the options appear.
In Vista and Windows 7 you want to get to the recovery console and look down at the bottom of the window for the Dos Command.
