if files that could not be repaired were found,were you asked to provide a W.7 cd or anything?
A failed chkdsk scan may indicate a problem with the hdd.
Doing a hdd diagnostics test, is what i would suggest is best at this point.
Preferably choose one for the same brand as your hdd. or http://www.seagate.c...ols-win-master/

What was the error message you received from chkdsk? I agree with jds63, sounds like the hard drive may be defective. Definitely worth running the manufacturers diagnostic to se4e what it finds.

Please run the hard drive diagnostic and see if that shows any problems.

Get one that has at lest 4GB of ram and runs the 64 bit version of Windows.

I do have Windows 8 looking and feeling like Windows 7 though it does not have Aero glass which I miss.

Asus has a very good reputation.
Personally i never used one,but i know several people who have Asus laptops,
and praise them,as good quality and reliable.
Of course you can come across a lemon in any brand(if you're unlucky enough).
What i would do before deciding on a particular brand or model,is to check out that particular forum
and read through the opinions(and any complaints) of those who have it.
So research before you buy,is the way to go.
