Fsck failed. Please repair manually and reboot.

When I turn my on computer and boot into linux the following error comes up.

fsck failed. Please repair manually and reboot. The root file system is currently mounted read-only. To remount it read-write do;

bash# mount -n -o remount,rw/

Attention: Only CONTROL-D will reboot the system in this maintenance mode. Shutdown or reboot will not work.

The computer is a dual boot windows/linux computer and windows works fine. The system had been working with no problems for about 6 months and I have never attempted to change any partioning settings.

What do I do to get my computer working again.

About shutting it down by removing plugs or forcing it to shutdown by clicking on the hardrive button.

depending on the partition where the problem is located
fsck /dev/hdaXXX
hdaXXX could be sda, sdb depending on your computer.
