Try running chkdsk with the CD in the drive to see if it completes the task.

If the computer shuts down or you shut it down other than normal It knows what to check and will only check that. Not things that do not need checking. To run a full check do it through My Computer

1-3 is normal unless you have highlighted the other 2 options.

Be prepared to let it take 2-3 hours.

Route to get there: My Computer > C drive (Local Disk) > Properties > Tools > Check Now > Highlight both options > Reboot your PC > Get out a good movie or book! It really will take hours.
