fsck:No Such file


Hi All
I have installed Ubuntu in my system.After a forced shutdown i am unable to boot into my system.when booting via recovery mode its failing in file system check.Its telling "fsck:No such file". But if i boot "normal boot up" its booting up and i am able to login.After logging in, nothing is getting displayed.Just a blank screen comes up.After sometime screen saver comes.If i press any button desktop screen appears but no folders are displayed.
Can anyone tell me what might be the problem

Thanks and Regards
Ananth

Try to boot your computer from LiveCD (you can use the same Ubuntu) and perform fsck for all disks.

what do you mean by recovery mode? are you booting from the live CD/installation Disk etc to boot into the rescue mode or you are just booting into single user mode?

Ubuntu have a "Recovery mode" boot option that is basically single user, and minus the bootsplash - I suspect the OP is using that.
If that is unable to find fsck, you'll need to do as suggested, and use a liveCD.

Use a livecd and disk check your harddrive.
It looks like there may be some corruption.
