  • It sounds like your hard drive may be developing problems or there are other hardware issues with the laptop. The disk check on start is launched when Windows sets the "dirty bit" due to detecting a problem with the file system at shut down or startup. Shutting down spontaneously can be caused by overheating or a power supply problem.
