I have a laptop with Windows Vista Premium on it. One day when I went to turn it on, I didn't load and instead took me to some sort of recovery console mode where I ran a repair utility. Then I was able to boot into Vista but when I logged into my account it wasn't the same, it said something about a "temporary account". I ran check disk and it said something about a corrupt system volume, and check disk keeps hanging at 13%. The laptop is running very slow and the hardware makes strange noises. Sometimes a very unpleasant scratching noise is made that lasts a few seconds. When I login to my account, I type in my password, but all of my short cuts and settings are different, but if I navigate through C: I can find files I have saved on the desktop of my "normal account". When I bought the laptop it came with a recovery partition. Also I backed everything up to an external hard disk using Norton Ghost. Also I've got the Windows Vista recovery disc. What is the best course of action?
