If you have another machine, hook your hd to it and run a DOS check disk.

Once you have the machine started with the drive connected as a slave drive.

Start->Run->type cmd

Once you get the command box type chkdsk (the drive name d: C: E: or whatever) then the commands /f /R so for example: chkdsk d: /F /R the press enter.

Cool I'll try that when i get home. I have an IDE/Sata to USB adapter so I can just slave it that way to my laptop and do a Dos check. Thanks for the tip I'll try it later today.

What am I looking for by doing this though?

If you have bad sectors, you have a bad hard drive, if you don't windows will make correction to the file system and that might fix your problems.

But what is difference between running chkdsk as a slave hd or running it by booting to the Windows Repair Console which I've already done?

Did you get to see your results ? If not, then I don't see the point of a check disk if you can't see your results.

That's what this thread is all about. 75% through it stopped and gave me the "volume contains unrecoverable errors" message.
