Problem mounting Windows harddisk...

Hi everyone,

Since yesterday my Windows diskpartition is unable to mount!
So earlier I made a Windows partition with Bootcamp, and when I wanted to boot in Windows, i just holded ALT when I booted my macbook, and chose the Windows-partition. When I do this now, it says "an error has occurred, press Ctrl+alt+delete", or something like that (Ctrl+alt+delete doesn't help).

Then I booted in Macintosh, and opened my Disk Utility. There I saw my Windows-partition was GREY instead of black-lettered (=deactivated...).
When I try to activate it, the following error occurres:

NTFS-3G could not mount /dev/disk0s3
at /Volumes/Untitled because the following
problem occurred:

Inode is corrupt (5): Input/output error
Failed to mount '/devrdisk0s3': Input/output
NTFS is either inconsistent, or there is a hardware fault, or it's a
SoftRAID/FakeRAID hardware. In the first case run
chkdsk /f on Windows
then reboot into Windows twice.
The usage of the /f parameter is very important!
If the device is a SoftRAID/FakeRAID
then first activate
it and mount a different device under the /dev/
mapper/ directory, (e.g. /dev/pammer/nvidia_eahaabcc1).
Please see the 'dmraid' documentation for more details.

I really don't know what this means...
Can someone help me please? There are important documents on my Windows partition...

Thank you so much!
