    You can try what parted shows from live mode, and also fixparts:
    Code:
    sudo parted -l
    www.rodsbooks.com/fixparts/
    sudo parted -l
    reported this:
    Error: Can't have a partition outside the disk!

    ****** AND

    sudo fixparts /dev/sda
    reported this:

    MBR command (? for help): p

    ** NOTE: Partition numbers do NOT indicate final primary/logical status,
    ** unlike in most MBR partitioning tools!

    ** Extended partitions are not displayed, but will be generated as required.

    You should try to download the gparted live cd and burn it to a cd and use that. I use it all the time on windows and linux machines.

    Sometimes all it needs is to rewrite the same table again. The fixparts output looks fine, if you select 'w' to write the table as it is, it should be fine.

    But before doing that it's always a good advice to make a full backup of your system and data, just in case.

    So maybe you plan to delete sda8 and then create:

    swap 2GB or thereabouts
    ext4 to use all the remainder for /
