It sounds like it's stuck in a loop but has yet to repair anything it found. Go into safe Mode by tapping Function 8 at startup. Go from Start to Run and into the open box, type regedit and press Enter.

Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CURRENTCONTROLSET\CONTROLand double click on the Session Manager folder. A list of keys will appear in the right pane. At this key:- BootExecute:REG_MULTI_SZ: check that it shows in the right hand pane an entry ending like this:-

autocheck autochk *

If there is anything other than autocheck autochk * at the end of BootExecute:REG_MULTI_SZ: right click on BootExecute:REG_MULTI_SZ: and choose modify. In the dialog box, delete all the text.

Then, type autocheck autochk * into the dialog box and click OK. Leave the Registry Editor from the File menu and restart.

Open a Command Prompt and type chkdsk /r so that it finds and fixes the errors instead of just reporting them. That will be a one-off.
