You want to run chkdsk /r on each drive as follows:

 

For C: Drive (assuming that's your system drive):

 right-click on a command prompt icon and open as administrator. In the command prompt window type: chkdsk /r  (then press ENTER). You'll be told the disk is in use and asked if you want to run checkdisk on the next boot. Say yes, exit the command prompt window, and reboot.
 
For all other drives, click on START - RUN and for d: drive you would type: chkdsk d: /r and then press enter. If you are asked if you want to dismount the drive, just say yes. For e: drive you would type: chkdsk e: /r , etc. for each drive. Note that there is a space between the drive letter and the forward slash.

chkdsk stands for check disk. It checks for errors that may bne causing your problems and attempts to fix them.

oh, i forgot to mention, i actually only have one disk drive. so does that mean that this has already been done? because i know "chkdsk" appeared when it started. 

 

or do i have to do all this anyway?
