Hello
This is my first time here

*My OS is Vista 32 home premium
*
*I found an error in the event viewer, which is -Event 55 NTFS-.
*The file system structure on the disk is corrupt and unusable.
*Please run the chkdsk utility on the volume OS_Install.
*
*So I ran the chkdsk through the command prompt as the administrato
and message I got at the end was:
*The volume bitmap was incorrect
*Windows found problems with the file system.
*Run CHKDSK /F (fix) option to correct these.
*
*I tried this through the command prompt and ended up scheduling i
next time I started the computer. It stated that windows has found n
problems with the file system. But the event viewer still says there i
an error.
*
*I managed to run the chkdsk from the safe mode and through th
installation disk as well. It states again that windows has found n
problems with the file system.
*
*But when back in vista I still get the error message in both the even
viewer and chkdsk from the command prompt.
*
*Is there something wrong with my hard drive?
**
*thanks
*

Something is certainly wrong with your keyboard: it's putting
asterisks at the beginning and the end of sentences and it's putting
two of them between paragraphs.

Suggest you run chkdsk C: /f /r

You will have to reboot to do so. This will take a long time as the entire
drive will be checked for inconsistencies.

Running chkdsk C: /f only checks the area of the drive where information is
presently residing.

On a large drive you may have a multi hour test. Be patient and allow it to
complete!

Thanks for the suggestion

I did try what you suggested and it did state thet Windows found n
problems with the file system

But after it booted up into vista, the event viewer still states th
Event 55 "at leat 7 times

The file system structure on the disk is corrupt and unusable. Pleas
run the chkdsk utility on the volume OS_Install.

And chkdsk under the command prompt in vista is again stating the fil
system has errors. See attached example

I also forgot to add this picture.

This NTfs error continues for several seconds.

Is there a problem with the hard drive or Vista?

I suggest you run the hard drive manufacturers drive test utility. All the
major manufacturers have one in their download section of their web pages.
