I guess this was meant for me.

When you boot the system does the fsck check automatically. The above 
does not really mean anything. I should have been more specific and said 
to run the check MANUALLY at boot time.

My wife's computer was playing up similarly to what you are mentioning. 
At boot up it also showed that fsck showed no problems. I wasn't 
convinced. I ran e2fsck manually and it found a ton of errors. Which is 
why I am suggesting that you run e2fsck manually. If it shows no 
problems then you have not lost anything but gained a bit of knowledge 
that the problem lies elsewhere. And when you run e2fsck do NOT use the 
"-p" parameter.


Wife sent me to the doctor to get the pills for me to have an erection.
When I came back I gave her the packet of slimming pills.
I am still looking for somewhere to live.
