need help.. power failure now no boot

We had a power failure at the house today and the Myth box went down. Now when I try to boot the box it "FAILED" on checking the "filesystems".

It appears to have mounted the root file system but after that I get the message:

"An error occoured during the file system check
Droping you to a shell; the system will reboot
when you leave the shell
Give root password for maintenance
(or type Control-D to continue)"

The filesystem is setup like so with a LVM:

Partition Mount Point Size Format
/dev/hda1 /boot 50-100MB ext3
/dev/hda2 swap same as RAM (ex: 512MB) swap
/dev/hda3 / 8-12GB ext3
/dev/hda5 /VolGroup01 Everything else jfs

# pvdisplay /dev/hda5

Couldn't find device with uuid' eZ9..........
Couldn't find all physical volumes for volume group VolGroup01
format_text: _vg_read failed to read VG Volgroup01

--- Physical volume ---
PV Name /dev/hda5
VG Name
PV Size 140.35
Allocatable no
PE Size (KByte) 0
Total PE 0
Free PE 0
Allocated PE 499
PV UUID eZ9..........

This is not good... help... please...

Sorry to reply to my own thread but it appears the BIOS doesn't recognize the drive any longer? Any thoughts or ideas?

My appologies to the forum for a premature post.

It appears the BIOS was/is the culprit not identifying the hardware hence causing the problem.
