    Easiest way to solve your problem, is to use the Restoration Disk (CD) if you have one for the computer. If not see if you can contact your computer manufacturer support for it. The file indicated that is corrupt is a Windows start up file. (Boot file) The reason it is corrupt? 1) May have been caused by a virus 2) May be damage on the Platter inside the Harddrive, (Sector and Track), that the Boot file needed is on. 3) May be the usual Windows 'thing'. (Windows is a funny{?} animal. Just looses it sometimes) Sometimes using CHecKDiSK works, sometimes it doesn't. I'd go with the Restoration Disk, and do a Repair. (Non-Destructive Installation)

You might try and use the original installation cd and see if you have an option to boot into recovery console. Try running chkdsk from there....
Do not try to reinstall the os using the disk. Just go into recovery mode....

Windows 7 detect hard disk failure in acer Laptop 5336-2524


The chances is good that the hard drive is faulty when Windows says that. The best is to backup all your information and get a qualified technician to test the hard drive properly and then to replace the hard drive if faulty.

http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_7-system/windows-detected-a-hard-disk-problem/04a301bc-e063-429d-ac93-f8f4062e5d62

If it is not the hard drive then it might be your hdd controller on the motherboard. If that is the case you will need to replace the motherboard. But a motherboard can be expensive. In that case you can get rid of the laptop and rather buy a new one.

Chrome.exe - corrupt disk the file system structure on the disk is corrupt and unuseable. Please run the Chkdsk utility on the volume C:.


While installing Google Chrome, the installation program detected problems with the file system and wants you to run chkdsk to repair them. Either go to a cmd prompt (or click on Start, Run) and key-in chkdsk /f The /f instructs chkdsk to fix any file system errors it finds as it checks your hard drive, You will receive a message the the disk is currently locked and asking you if you want to run chkdsk the next time the system starts, Respond with Y. Then restart your computer. You will receive a message that a disk check has been scheduled - allow it to proceed. Chkdsk will execute and repair any problems it finds with the file system. After completion, your computer will start up normally. Now you should be able to install Chrome.

My Dell Inspiron E1405 is getting the blue screen of death before starting up windows xp. It has the stop codes 0x00000024 (0x001902FE, 0xF8C7E4D4, 0x0F8C7E1D0, 0x83622816) it tells me to uninstall any...


STOP 0x00000024, 0X0000024, 0X24 or NTFS_FILE_SYSTEM = this stop error means that your NTFS file system is corrupt and this is practically impossible to fix - absolutely everything on your hard disk is trashed. The only reliable way to fix that is to reinstall Windows.

Dell Laptop Inspiron 6400 - "Stop Error Screen" appearing


This stop error means that your ntfs file system is corrupt (damage in the file system, bad hard drive data, corrupt SCSI or IDE drivers or a corrupt ntfs.sys file).

There are two ways,you might be able to fix it

1, If you still can access Windows, try to disable any backup programs, virus scanning programs or disk defragmenter tools. Try also to run a hardware diagnostics tool to detect any errors your hard drive might have. And run chkdsk /r to detect and repair any file system structural damage.

2, If you are unable to load Windows. Then you should try to access your ntfs partitions by making a ntfs boot disk with NTFS4DOS (freeware).

After you load the bootable floppy disk onto your damaged system, select either option one (1) or option three (3). If you selected option one (1), type chkdsk /r at the command prompt, and your problem should go away after the disk has been repaired.

Note! Unfortunately there is a chance that your partition is corrupt beyond repair and all of your data is lost. In that case, you need to reformat the partition to be able to use it again.

No boot up


Solution :
  • Run chkdsk /r or chkdsk /f to detect and resolve any file system structural damage.
  • After you use the Chkdsk tool to repair the corrupted NTFS volume, rename %SystemRoot%\System32\Drivers\Ntfs.old to Ntfs.sys, and then shut down and restart the computer.
  • Try disabling any virus scanning programs, backup programs, or disk defragmenter tools that constantly monitor your computer.
  • Run any system diagnostics that are supplied by your computer manufacturer, especially a HDD check.
