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.
I booted from a live disk and ran it manually. How else could I
insert the -f switch?
I'm not stupid enough to fsck a mounted disk, and it won't remount RO.
