    I ran disk utility and this is the message i received.

    Volume Header needs minor repair
    The volume The volume sh HD needs to be repaired.

    Error: The underlying task reported failure on exit

    It won't let me repair the disk . i tried booting with the install disk and it still won't let me repair it.

    Any advice would be appreciated

    i'm using osx 10.4.5 with a gig of ram

    If it still works fine then you shouldn't worry about it, I used to get that before it started up..

    You could just re-install the OS and you won't get that...

    Maybe go to System Preferences and head to the Startup Disk pane. Make sure your internal drive is selected. :)
