Try this if you are using ext3:

fsck.ext3 /dev/hda1

Note: it is strongly recommend to perform this operation with the file system in question unmounted. Using a livecd is the most convenient way.

I tried the above commands but getting following message :
fsk.ext3:No such device or address while trying to open /dev/sdb1

Possibly non-existent or swap device ?

Before this I would like to mention that I have deleted /dev/sdb1 disk from my VmWare machine .And reboot my system .
