    Re: FSCK help

    ntfsprogs has merged wtih ntfs-3g and if you download the old ntfsprogs it uninstalls the ntfs-3g and you cannot access NTFS partitions anymore. (at least in some versions just after the merger).

    Well, you do have a swap partition and it's running OK.

    The error message on your fsck of sda5 is because it's a swap partition, and as I thought, fsck does not work on that type of partition.

    You are using quite a lot of RAM, however, and I wonder if your system is overheating a bit, causing the crashes, which I think are completely coincidental to any swap situation.
