Many thanks cradom & chscag, worked fine!

Can I use this to repair an external HDD as well? I've got one that doesn't tend to unmount without running "lsof | egrep [drive name]" and "kill -9 [process number]" from Terminal... obviously I'm going to replace this HDD very soon with a newer one, but in the meantime I'd still like to use it. It needs this still after I've repaired the laptop, so the problem should be on the external HDD.

The same unmounting problem has also appeared on some occasion on my 1 TB HDD from last year, so maybe I should run the disk utility on that one as well, unless it was just something related to the laptop's problems.
