Ubuntu 8.04 Will Not Go To Login Screen


I'm running Hardy Heron Satanic Edition. When I start my computer, it gets to the bootup logo thing (http://ubuntusatanic.org/screenshots...Usplash-ss.jpg), and stops at the first "A". Then, after a while, a large flow of text comes down, with stuff about "fsck" and errors. I will post the text in a little while, I need to write it all down.

This is the text:

checking drive /dev/sda1: 44% (stage 1/5, 279/439) over and over
/dev/sda1: Inodes that were part of a corrupted orphan linked list found
/dev/sda1: UNEXPECTED INCONSISTENCY; RUN fsck MANUALLY
(i.e., without -a or -p options)

fsck died with exit status 4
[fail]

*An automatic filesystem check (fsck) of the root filesystem failed.
A manual fsck must be performed, then the system restarted.
The fsck should be performed in maintenance mode with the
root filesystem mounted in read-only mode.
The root filesystem is currently mounted in read-only mode.
A maintenance shell will now be started.
After performing system maintenance press CONTROL-D
to terminate the maintenance shell and restart the system.

can you login at all? If you have a console login prompt you can login and run fsck.

Perhaps booting to the LiveCD and accessing the terminal from there to run "fsck."

I have an external usb drive and I got the exact same message when I booted in recovery mode (it was hanging on boot every time)and when I read the message above, I figured that I could just write fsck /dev/sdb1 (you would have to put in probably /dev/sda1 since that is the drive that your system is telling you needs a manual check). Then it did this thing called Pass 1 (?)-it was running a system check- and then eventually got to something called Pass 5, I think and it kept telling me that this or that needed repairing and giving me the option to say y/n and I kept saying y and eventually it went back to the rootshell promt and asked to reboot normally and I did that and now it's back to normal. Oh, sorry, at some point when I thought it was all finished I did press Control D, as it says above and it took me back to this 4 option menu that said something like resume normal boot and a few other options. I wish I could have filmed it because now I don't remember everything exactly but I guess I just went with what it prompted and what I understand it to have done was a system check and some kind of repair. There were some blocks (1.6%, it said) that couldn't be read or something but that didn't really affect anything from what I can gather.
Hope this helps.
