Re: [PLUG] Desktop Support ?

On the netbook, it sounds to me like something on the HD became corrupted when the machine ran out of power. As the voltage from the battery was dropping lower and lower, it may have begun writing gibberish to the drive...this might have gone on a while before the machine quit altogether. The good news is it's unlikely that the hardware itself is damaged, but the bad news is that it's very possible that more than the one file the computer complains about is corrupted.

I don't know how to go about recovering from something like that, others may have advice there. In the worst case, copying your personal files onto something else and doing a format and reinstall should fix it.
