    Shutdown problems

    Hello all
    since my freezing problems with 7.10 and 8.04 I have reverted to 7.04.
    I installed this 2 days ago using wubi.
    Today, with no changes to the system I have suddenly started having
    shutdown problems. I select shutdown from the panel, I get a black screen with Ubuntu in the middle, and this changes to a black screen with the
    following text :

    Unmounting temporary filesystems [ok]
    Deactivating swap [fail]
    Unmounting local filesystems
    can't link lock file /etc/mtab~ : read-only file system
    (use -n flag to override) [fail]

    followed by the following 3 lines :
    /etc/init.d/rc:2:/etc/rc6.d/S60mountroot: input/output error
    /etc/init.d/rc:2:/etc/rc6.d/S90reboot: input/output error
    /etc/init.d/rc:2:/etc/rc6.d/S99killntfsrg: input/output error

    and the system just hangs. I have to power off to shut down.

    Can anyone help ?

    You may have bad sectors on your hard disk drive. Sorry.

    Go to and get MHDD, then make a boot CD, get the MHDD 4.6 ISO.
    Then when MHDD is booted, type "scan" and then press the F4 key to scan the hard disk drive for defects.

    You may be required to replace the hard disk drive, because you gotten I/O errors.
