You could run ( from the live cd );
e2fsck -fpC 0 /dev/hdXY
"hdxy" should be changed to correct label and number of your hard disk ( partitions ).

How old is hard disk? How many partitions do you have? Have you added or removed any hard disk lately?

Dear Sohail,

Its a kernal panic problem. As u have said when you boot again later its work fine.
Remember next time or at any time may be on different day you got the same
problem again.

Actually there is no problem with linux file system so no need to run any kind of
commands link fsck or e2fsck. There is no problem with your journaling feature of linux

The problem is some thing different and its related to the memory of your computer,
by saying memory here i mean Your RAM. Yes its your RAM who is responsible for all this.

So i order to get the permanent solution i suggest you to please change your RAM.

Hope its help you.
