    Please describe your system setup in more detail...how many hdd did u use and how many o/s were installed on them? What file system did u use...is it NTFS? In your case, it seems like hardware failure since u can't run CHKDSK from run function either...

    BTW, what exactly did the windows telling u when failed to run the CHKDSK?
