Windows 7: Windows 7 Start Up Repair Say's "System Volume Is Corrupt"

Any time I see a S.M.A.R.T. Error of any kind I have had to replace the drive. that "Self Test" is pretty accurate when it comes to failure. I have had "SeaTools", "WD Data Lifegaurd" as well as the Toshiba tools tell me a drive is good even thought the smart has tripped. That error means it can't read the smart data. partial failure to begin with. I use MRI from Eurosoft and it's pretty dang spot on.

Also Noted on your First Screenshot there is listed by chkdsk the 16 bad clusters added to the bad cluster file. that means failure is imminent. sorry but I would return it asap

I would like to add a note to this thread just an opinion really. I have noted that a lot of people want a simple single test to tell them what is wrong with their PC.

Not picking on you Jeffro97 it's just an observation.

No singe test can be definitive as to the issue at hand. I have seen Malwarebytes and Superantispyware along with resident AV come up clean and an Eset online scan find a ton of trash. I have seen it the other way around too. I have used all the Hard drive tools listed and have had them say all is good but the bad cluster file looks like a role call at a marine boot camp.

Test and test again with a different tool will give you at least a good indication of where the failure is.

Your screen shots tell the tale as smart failure along with bad cluster recognition means the disk is not retaining the info as it should. It could be a bad disk or a bad controller on the drive itself. The only way to know for sure is to have someone with a forensics machine diagnose each part individually. That's why they charge hundreds to rescue data. The machine is expensive as is the labor involved.

**sorry for the rant. I guess I just needed to say it.**

I did some searching, since this problem is associated with a lot of blue screens. I downloaded and installed BlueScreen Viewer by Nirsoft, and it showed me that the reason it was crashing was due to a system process.

Here's a screenshot.

In your first post Ubuntu has clearly indicated "input/output error. NTFS is either inconsistent or there is a hardware fault" A hardware - read HDD - fault can make NTFS inconsistent. A disk check may correct the problem but if the problem returns again in a few days/weeks, that is a clear indication of a deteriorating HDD.

Even a new hard drive can be faulty.

In your situation, I would have returned it to the vendor and replaced it taking advantage of the vendor's return policy and would indulge in further research only if even that second new drive exhibits the same problem.

I am not going to get a phd. from Palo Alto in trying to find out what exactly is causing this problem.
