    This is a last resort fix if forcing a disk check doesn't fix the hard drive.

    Here is my favorite that I have used recently.

    Boot-Repair-disk

    Using Linux/Windows tools you can write the ISO to a USB stick. I have not burned a CD / DVD in many years now.

    In Linux it is a bit different. You configure a forced disk check in the boot sequence where as it checks the disk before booting the OS (or mounting the hard drive).
    Great! Thanks for the tips Pete.

    Thanks for the pointer Pete. So I take it you permanently leave the USB ISO disk plugged in as a fail safe?

    Where can I get the ISO file?

    Thanks for your pointer anyway. It's fixed now.

    Hope the disk error stays away and is not a sign of a deteriorating SSD.

    I should have added that it happened after my SEL had another of it's gmail caused HS3 crashes. I really need to do something about using another email system.

    However, this time when I turned the power off and on as I usually do, it wouldn't boot up.

    I connected a screen to check what was going on and there was a disk error. First time I've had that occur. Fixed that, then it reported mono-sgen had stopped unexpectedly. I assumed that it was related to the disk error. Rebooted several times after that and it looked fine.

    Next I tried turning the power off then on, and that is when I discovered that the SEL was not restarting automatically.

    started a topic SEL won't restart on power restore

    SEL won't restart on power restore

    My SEL used to restart automatically after a power outage returns power to the SEL.

    But I just discovered it no longer does so. Anyone know why this has happened or what controls the auto restart?
