    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    Click start/run and type cmd. In the window that opens type chkdsk /r /f and hit the enter key. Schedual a disk check to take place the next time you start your computer. type exit, and restart your system. Please note. This can take a long time to complete depending on how large your harddrive is.

    Also take a look HERE for a list of drive diagnostic tools. They will enable you to test the fitness of your harddrive.
