When booting my sony pcg-fx120 laptop I now must press the f1 to get it to continue the booting process.

If I don't press the f1 key, the screen stays black, like it is stuck or something. This has been happening for the past 2 weeks. Prior to that, it booted automatically like many computers do. I don't know if I accidently hit a key causing it yo require pressing f1 to continue booting. In addition, after pressing f1, the OS always has run scandisk to fix itself.
