7.1 crashed and caused the whole system to go down. Now, When re-booting, it goes through it's processes and it halts with a message telling me to either fix the problem by typing in my root password or continue normally by pressing "Control-D." If I press Ctrl-D, The computer re-boots and I am left with the same problem. The PC recommends running "fsck" but it seems as though I'm having to check each and every file. Note: It recommends not to use the -p and -a switches. Even trying fsck -a just did one individual file anyway.
Any help would be greatly appreciated, Don't won't to lose all customizations and installs I've already done to the system.
