I apparently have a damaged drive. I ran chkdsk C: on vista and it said
the Volume Bitmap is incorrect. i have vista set up to run chkdsk /f on
start up, but when it starts, chkdsk sits there at 0% and does not move.

Do you have access to a Vista Install Disc? If so, try running chkdsk in
Command Prompt from there, by booting the disc. Here's how:

Hi ChainsInTheWall,

Welcome to Vistax64.com forum and this newsgroup.

Are you receiving any errors while in Vista or having any other
noticable problems? If so, you may consider booting from the Vista
installation DVD and deleting all partitions on that hard drive and then
format it and reinstall Vista. Be sure to backup anything you do not
want to loose first. Hopefully this may help. Otherwise, it is time to
get a new hard drive.

Shawn
