Problem with scandisk

Question

When I boot up, it takes me right into scandisk. When I run scandisk, it acknowledges errors, and attemps to complete scandisk, but then notifies me that the FAT file is damaged, and cannot be repaired. I have also attemted to defrag, but get the same type of message, that it can't be completed because of an error. If I skip scandisk at boot up, the computer works fairly well, but is unstable about half the time, and sometimes I cannot shut down properly, including the power off button not responding. Thanks for your help.

Problem with scandisk

When your computer boot and go directly to scandisk, this is because the computer did not shut down correctly, and when problem like this happen could damage some files from your systems.

I recommend to you that make back up of your important files and reinstall your operating system, and you will see that message never show up again.
