Unhappy HELP HELP HELP, My fedora 9 boot up Error

I have just installed FC9 on my computer and used it for a day and every thing was fine and nice.
but now during the boot up i get a horrible error saying
Setting up Logical Volume managment: 2 Logical volume(s)in group "VolGroup00" now active [ok]
Checking file systems
/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 conatians a file system with errors, check forced.
Error reading block 165006 (attempt to read block from filesystem resulted in short read) while getting next inode from scan.
(i.e., without -a or -p options)
*** An error occured during the file system check.
***Dropping you ti a shell; the syetem sill reboot
***when you leave the shell.
***Warning -- SELinux is active
***Disabling security enforcement for system recovery.
***Run 'setenforce 1 ' to reenable.
Give root password for maintenance
(or type Control-D to continue):
What causes this error? why? how?
what do i do?
could it be that my mother board is at fault here? i ask this because I have two hard drives and the one with windows in needs at least three attempts to boot from and its name has changed to a long string of nonsense from the original "Matxtor something".
thank you for your help guys

did you try running what the error msg asked to do i.e "fsck"? seems some problem with your file system.
i dont think it has anything to do with your motherboard, nothing like that to worry about.

yes i have,
it just returns:
Pass1: Checking inodes, blocks, and sizes
Error reading block 165006 (attempted to read block from filesystem resulted in short read) while getting the next inode from scan. Ignore error<y>?
if i say yes itll just throws back the same error but with different block number

2 questions:

You used LVM to set up the Volume group, is the volume spanned across the 2 disks you mention?

If your volume is not spanned over the 2 disks:

Have you tried booting the system with the flaky windows drive disconnected?
