    Any chance you could use the snipping tool to take a picture of your disk management window and attach using the paperclip on the advanced replies?

    Looks like a ram error, get memtest and check each strip , one at a time..:)

    To increase your virtual memory, follow these steps:

    1 - Click Start
    2 - Click Control Panel
    3 - Click System Security
    4 - Click System
    5 - Click Advanced System Settings
    6 - Click Advanced Tab
    7 - Click Settings Button (Under performance)
    8 - Click Advanced Tab
    9 - Click Change Button (Under Virtual Memory)
    10 - Change the Value (I set mine from 2000MB to 4000MB under custom size)
    11 - Click Set
    12 - Click OK

    The simple version of my advice would be to use another partition program. The best experiences I've had with gParted GParted -- About

    Sorry not to be able to solve the whole problem.
