I'm getting lots of chkdsks -- pretty much every time I start up windows. I'm also getting BSODs very often, within 2-3 minutes of logging in. Other times, it freezes up and I have to do a hard reboot. And applications, particularly chrome, constantly crashes. Before, windows aero stopped working -- not sure if those are relevant or not. The coincidental timing seems rather odd though. That might just be from crashing so much while the programs were running.
But when I use my linux partition, everything works pretty smoothly. This is probably more indicative of a windows error, rather than a HDD failure, correct?
If so, how should I proceed? Would a windows repair install work? Or do I have to do a fresh install?
