The first message indicates that in its routine check, Windows has detected file system corruption of the drive and is attempting to fix it.


The second message implies that the corruption is so severe that Windows can NOT fix it.


This will repeat until you get fed up and turn off the PC -- as Windows can not repair damaged drives.


If your PC is new enough to support UEFI, you can use these steps to test the hard drive:

If not, to check the drive you have to follow these steps:
1) Press Esc key repeatedly, several times a second, while rebooting the laptop. Do NOT hold the key down, just press it over and over.
2) Eventually, you will see an HP Startup Menu
3) Press the Function key for testing the hard drive (usually F2) and let it run.
