Those are a mix of drive errors (again) and CD drivers ....

So first lets update all your drivers

Download and install DriverMax
The free version allows two free downloads per day so that should suffice

When the programme opens then select driver update


You will be taken to a web page like this

My page

Could you post the address of the page and I will determine which would be the best drivers to download

I think your hard drive is on the way out.. I would highly recommend that you backup all important data now - It will have to be to a USB stick or USB external drive as the CD crashing may damage data

We can continue with the updated driver downloads but I am not sure that they will achieve anything usefull. These will be the first two

NVIDIA nForce Serial ATA Controller
NVIDIA nForce PCI System Management


What is the make and model of your computer and I will see if I can locate a reasonably priced drive for it

Do you know whether you have a SATA or IDE type drive - oops just noticed you have SATA

The prices seem a bit high to me for a reasonable drive $100 which is about £65

But I would recommend that you get a replacement - as the way you keep getting the check disc alert and unmountable volume suggest that it is not long for this world

Could you go to Control Panel > Device manager and look for any yellow exclamation marks by the network adapter

Could you give me any details that appear on the adapter
