Um, why? If I had problems, then LO wouldn't be the only with problems. 
Everything else is working fine. :)

Hi :)
Have you ever used a Gnu&Linux before, such as Ubuntu or something?  Do you know how to run a 
LiveCd session without installing it and without it touching your hard-drive at all?

If so then it might be good to use a LiveCd or LiveUsb session to scan the hard-drive to see if 
there is a problem with it.  Perhaps do an antivirus scan at the same time (well, shortly after 
as it's best to let GPartEd do it's thing without touching the hard-drive in any other way at the 
same time.).

I tend not to use Ubuntu for this sort of thing.  It's too heavy and takes ages as a LiveCd and 
doesn't get to the LiveCd session unless you first choose to install it and then use the 
back-button to get back to the pop-up that gives a choice to "Try it".  Every other distro i have 
tried does a better LiveCd session and usually gets straight into the LiveCd session without any 
effort at all.  So, for this sort of thing i would probably use Trinity Rescue Kit.
but there are a lot of choices out there and we probably each have our own favourites.
