target filesystem doesnt have /sbin/init.


I have installed Ubuntu 10.04 .. normally and I installed also some programs; I had problems with the monitor and many times I shutted down the CPU when I changed the monitor and turned on angain and appears a black screen:

after

mount: mounting /dev on root/dev failed: no such such file or dir
mount: mounting /sys on root/sys failed: no such such file or dir
mount: mounting /proc on root/proc failed: no such such file or dir

Target filesystem doesnt have /sbin/init
no init found. Try passing init=bootarg

Busybox v1.13 .3 -1ubuntu11 built in shell (ash)
Enter help for a lis of built-in commands


(initramfs)

I dont know what to do. I was looking for in internet and nothing helped me.

Can I do something with out format again?

Thanks for the help

Based on what you posted, it seems like your hard drive has gone bad. You don't say how you "shutted down" your system, but did you just unplug it/power it off?? Shouldn't have had to turn your CPU off to change the monitor, too, unless you changed the video card as well.

Well then, since you didn't bother to shut things down correctly, it's likely you've corrupted your hard drive. Restore your system from backups.
