Specs: Windows XP, 1500
When I switch on my screen is blue and an automatic dis check is performed. To me it looks like a Hd on its way out! Am I right?

When was the last time you did something for the first time?

Derek, I don't think this is about a BOD.
The OS is starting a disk check because a problem with disk was detected at boot level.
This used to be a win98 "feature" that popped up regularly especially when you power off the system without shutting down properly.
Some winxp version also seem to have this "feature" ...

Dawie: if this started to happen recently you might start making backups of your important data and prepare for a new disk.

Does chkdsk find any errors?

Here's some info on disabling that:

But take care in that it may be a drive problem as already speculated on.

Sorry guys. Allow me to make a correction. The blue screen appears but it is NOT checking my main HDD on which my OS is installed, it is checking another HDD which is linked to my pc via the second SATA port. After the process of checking is completed - and I may add that it hadn't found any errors- the computer goes through its normal switch-on processes. All of this takes a lot of time though. Not sure if this makes a difference in your responses.

Sluc, I think you are right. It started all-of-a-sudden recently and it does it every time I switch on.

Check BIOS and make sure that the second hard drive is not set as bootable and is not in the boot order. It may be looking for a boot manager and not finding one (or not a compatible one) tries to check it. Then 'finds' the real OS and boots.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
