Does your Windows Vista have the System Recovery Options installed? If so, repeatedly tap F8 right before the Windows Vista loading screen and a menu should appear. Select System Recovery Options and gain access to the Command Prompt.

Once there, type the following (one line at a time):


chkdsk /r

You might have to alter the first command if the letter of your main drive/partition is not C. For example, if it's E instead, you will have to type E: instead of C: as the first line. If you're unsure of the letter of your main drive, use dir C: to see the contents of the C: drive and do a similar thing for E: and so on until you find out for sure which letter is the root drive.
