comment fsck can't find fsck.ntfs
You can count more on Linux-based tools to recover your Windows installation and data than the Windows-based tools. Also I experienced that Linux lets you do things such as putting question marks in your filenames; this is officially permitted by NTFS standards but here's the joke: the Windows driver doesn't support it! I would like to point at dedicated "Linux-based Rescue / Repair Live-CDs" (or USB) such as SystemRescueCD.

Thanks for pointing out powertop. I just realized I didn't have this problem before installing it. Your command isn't correct on Ubuntu, it should have been: sudo apt-get remove --purge powertop-1.13 && sudo apt-get autoremove
