    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.

    Used a check utility for my hard drive. the program was seagate tools
    for the hard drive and it came up with no errors and pass the hard
    drive.

    So is there any other ways to find out the what would cause the chkdsk
    in vista to detect errors in the file system when the chkdsk in other
    areas (ie from installation disk) would say that there is no errors in
    the file system?

    help

    The manufacturers program is looking for physical defects.

    chkdsk looks at the logics of the information stored upon the disk, as well
    as for physical defects.

    You likely have suffered from logical corruption. If it is very severe, you
    may want to consider wiping the system and starting over.

    How severe would it have be to on vista?

    As far as i can see everything seems to be working in vista. I have
    had no problems with my system. Every program works fine, eg cinema 4d,
    windows media player, windows update etc.

    The only problem i had was a 3D graphics card which caused the computer
    to freeze. But i have realised that it was my fault as i bought the
    wrong graphics card without checking to see if my motherboard could
    handle it.

    It seems strange that chkdsk states it ok before vista is booted and
    not in the command prompt.

    It is possible to re-install vista over the existing system?
