Corrupt disc error...

Specs: Windows Vista, Intel Core 2 Duo, 4 GB
For now about 4 month my laptop was running fine but since yesterday, a corrupt disc error suddenly appeares.

My laptop has Windows Vista and I actually like this OS but now, my system is maybe booting every 8th time the remaining seven times the image just freezes and remains shortly before you see the log in window.
But that's not even the worst, now i can't even write anything anymore. Every time i try to write something on Volume C, a corrupt disc error occures which states: " An unexpected error is preventing the operation. Make a note of this error code, which might be useful if you get additional help to resolve this problem: Error 0x80070571: The disk sturcture is corrupted and unreadable."

I cannot open any program with a few exceptions. All Windows programs seem to work such as Internet Explorer but also all the games but Firefox is working as well. Next to that, programs that have a startup connection (starting when windows start) work perfectly too except that you get an error message. If you close them and try to reopen them, it won't work. I cannot write anything on my volume C but i can do anything i want on volume D, my recovery volume.
I have tried to change the download location for Firefox and Internet Explorer as well but it won't work... because i thought about writing zeros... Next to these problems everything seems to work perfectly... Windows is not slowed down or anything and i can access every file on my system without writing or opening any program.

I really don't know what to do... Can anyone help?

It seems that you may have a bad hard drive or some sectors on your hard drive that are un-readable.

You may want to think about running a check disk on your hard drive.

- Open up My Computer
- Right-click on the C: drive and select Properties
- Go to the Tools Tab
- Find the Error-Checking box and click the button to run
- I would select both checkboxes on the popup window.

You will need to reboot and then the check disk will run.

Might try to find out what brand of hard drive you have and see if the OEM has any diags. Otherwise might download and run ultimate boot cd's tools.

If you have any important data on that drive, SAVE IT to another completely separate medium IMMEDIATELY!!!
Then test away, but it does sound like the drive is going.
