Hi,

Not enough information to form a good reply. So you've shown us your need! What's your deed?

We will aid you when you help yourself to a solution. Provide us with what you have attempted and then maybe someone will be able to assist.

'How to Ask Questions the Smart Way' would be one link you should look at to help us to help you in the future.

You could always use a LiveCD/DVD or Install CD/DVD to boot to single user mode then perform a 'fsck' on the filesystem(s). Again, what have you attempted? Error mesages or information? Crystal ball is broke!
