Superblock Check error


hi,
I have slackware 12.0 currently set up on a dual boot with windows (using bootpart and the ntloader) Recently i shut down my slackbox and rebooted it. now though it is saying that it cannot find an ext2 filesystem on the superblock.
Here are my partitions
/dev/hda1 Windows
/dev/hda2 Swap
/dev/hda3 Slackware

i have tried running e2fsck -v -y /dev/hda3 but to no avail

any ideas?

Thanks

right im not the best in the world at this but try pointing it to one of the superblock backups - norm 32768 is the first think its e2sfck -cy -b 32768 /dev/hda3 - not sure on which way around it has to go but i think its something like that

ive tried to do the
"e2fsck -b 8193 /dev/hda3" to no avail
ive run "e2fsck -c /dev/hda3/" with no bad blocks or sectors.
i will try "man badblocks" though.

I had similar prob when was fixing partition order with fdisk. Boot with live cd, mount /dev/hda3 and check that you have correct entries in fstab.
