I have no information about what was discussed before, but to me this looks like: Boot into windoze. Click on Start->Execute (don't know how this is exactly called on English windoze) or open a command window (cmd.exe). There, type: chkdsk /f . Tell windoze you want it to check the disk at reboot. Reboot into windoze, and let chkdsk repair the disk. Then reboot into linux and see what happens.
