Upon boot up the laptop goes to disk checking.

Disk checking; scan the entire disk drive for any possible data errors. It runs all night, but it  won’t finish.

The only thing I can do is turn off the laptop by pressing the power button.

When turning  again, same thing happen until the next  startup;

the screen goes blank and it stays there for a while then the message appear “Reboot and Select Proper Boot Device” or “Insert Boot Media in selected boot device and a key .

Turning off again with the same procedure, but at this time the PC boots automatically in CMOS setup configuration.
