Disk Repair not working

Hi, I have a Mac Mini (early 2006), running 10.6.8, and went to Disk Utility to check the hard drive. I verified the disk, and said the disk was corrupt and needed repair. Repaired it with the System DVD, and said it was successful. The next day I verified the disk again and the corrupt warning once again appeared. What can I do, are my files at risk?

Yes, your files are definitely at risk. It sounds like the drive is dying. I would buy an external drive ASAP and make sure you have a full backup then take that thing in to a shop to get the drive looked at. Or put in a new drive yourself.
