Why don't you do what it says and run fsck manualy?

May I also suggest just upgrading to a newer version. That'll too solve the problem.

you need to log in as root (as it is now in single-user mode) and fsck the disk manually. i'm not too sure of the linux parameters/arguments for the fsck command, but simply typing fsck -y should do the job.

In the future, please use better and more helpful thread titles instead of "help plzzz asap". As your question may be urgent to you, your asking on a free site where others answer questions in their own spare time. There is no gaurantee's on an answer and how fast it might get answered. Be considerate to other members here searching and answering, by giving better and more helpful thread titles; never saying its urgent or asap. It only comes off as a demand and rude.
