Click the Start Button > Type cmd > Right Click Cmd > Click Run as Administrator > Click Yes > Type chkdsk

This will give you administrative/elevated privileges to run chkdsk.

P.S.
Do you mean these problems occurred with Windows Vista or prior to installing Windows Vista?
Did it have Vista by default? You should do a Windows 7 clean install, since Vista may be unstable with your system.

Click on the Start Button and type CMD. I didn't tell you to open/enter CMD. (then continue the steps I mentioned earlier)
