Yesterday I wanted to make my Ubuntu partition bigger so I ran Windows (Dual boot) and decreased size of my D drive size. It wanted me to reboot computer, when it was starting up it done everything and rebooted once again. Then I saw grub rescue with "no filesystem" or something like that. I ran Ubuntu live CD to fix that and it is now working.
Problem is when I want to add unallocated part of HDD to my Ubuntu partition I can't, because GParted thinks whole disk is unallocated! I tried fixing filesystem by:
fsck /dev/sda5 -f -r, but I think that's not it (or I'm doing it wrong way). I have also tried
chkdsk from Windows Installation CD, but it didn't fix anything. Also, both of systems are working.
Is it just GParted problem, or maybe HDD is bad for real? If so, how to fix it?
fdisk -l can see partitions:
