My power went out for ten seconds yesterday, and when my desktop re-botted, it says drive D (hard drive) needs to confirm file consistency. It then performs a check and says all is well. The desktop then appears and the whole computer freezes. Anyone have any ideas on a fix? I have Windows XP with SP2.

Can you get into safe mode?

Its possible the power outage or spike damaged something.
