Specs: Windows XP
on starting up I get a blue screen ...
Checking file system on C:
Type of file system is NTFS
One of your discks needs to be checked for consistancy. You may cancel the disck check....etc
CHKDSK is verifying file (stages 1of3)...
CHKDSK is verifying indexes (stage 2of 3)...
0 percent completed

and thats where it freezes. nothing happens after that.
I know nothing about computers

what's happened is it broken and can a computer shop fix it?

You may have a failing hard drive or a corrupt operating system. A Reputable shop should be able to fix it. Hard drives are cheaper than they used to be, and the data can likely be saved if it came to that. Just be sure to pick a reputable person.

Thanks so much for the reply.

After a LONG time it just all of a sudden started to count down and has gone through the check and started XP ok.

BUT does that mean somethings up, and I should I go get a new hard drive?, It is noe 4 years old
