✔ Best Answer

You must allow the the disk check to run as there may be file system errors on the disk, in which case the disk check will rectify them. Once you've allowed it to run, your laptop should start normally.

The disk check runs automatically if you don't shut Windows down properly (eg a sudden loss of power) so make sure you always shut Windows down in the proper manner, either by using the Windows shutdown menu or by pressing the laptop's power button for a second.
