can you boot into safe mode with command prompt?

if you can, do that. at the c:> type chkdsk /x c:

let this run through to completion, may take a while if there are problems.
once this has gone through, reboot your PC.

if you can't get a safe mode command prompt, go into safe mode as per before and select run/cmd, this will bring up a dos windo. enter the chkdsk command as mentioned. it may say that it acnnot be done, would you like to do it next time windows is started (or something along those lines), say yes and reboot.
The PC will then go into a chkdsk cycle on boot up. again let this complete. go away and have a brew or something.

I hope this solves the issue for you.
