Yes, I have run checkdsk and nothing comes up. I have also installed fresh with no errors.
The odd thing is, Linux never gave me anything like this. Fortunately (knocking on wood) it's not restarting and giving me too many problems right now...hopefully that doesn't change.
If it does change, I might try a 20GB HDD laying around and see if it works any better, if that's not the case then what else should I try?
