    Hi Arber

    Well you can try booting from your win 7 dvd and while booting hit shift=F10. If that works you will be in a cmd prompt window where you could run a chkdsk.

    If you can get into your computer normally (from safe, or normal) run the below

    Code:
    CHKDSK /R /F:
    Run CHKDSK /R /F from an elevated (Run as adminstrator) Command Prompt. Please do this for each hard drive on your system.
    When it tells you it can't do it right now - and asks you if you'd like to do it at the next reboot - answer Y (for Yes) and press Enter. Then reboot and let the test run. It may take a while for it to run, but keep an occasional eye on it to see if it generates any errors. See "CHKDSK LogFile" below in order to check the results of the test.
    
    Elevated Command Prompt:
    Go to Start and type in "cmd.exe" (without the quotes)
    At the top of the Search Box, right click on Cmd.exe and select "Run as administrator"
    
    CHKDSK LogFile:
    Go to Start and type in "eventvwr.msc" (without the quotes) and press Enter
    Expand the Windows logs heading, then select the Application log file entry.
    Double click on the Source column header.
    Scroll down the list until you find the Chkdsk entry (wininit for Win7) (winlogon for XP).
    Copy/paste the results into your next post. 
    
    

    If not try to get into the cmd prompt as indicated. One thing, if you can get into the cmd prompt you should run CHKDSK /F/R.

    If you can get into cmd you might also be able to get the HD test suite from the mfr's website and run it from there.


    Let us know if you need further assistance
