Error Loading Operating System--Linux Ubuntu--Help

I am very new to Linux, heard it was pretty good from a friend. So I downloaded Linux Ubuntu and burned it to a CD and installed it. Now everytime I turn on my computer I get "Error loading operating system". I can boot from the Ubuntu CD, but I cant boot to my old disk drive. I try installing Ubuntu again and I get the error "The test of the file system with type ext3 i partition #1 of SCS13(0,0,0)(sda) found uncorrected errors. I was running windows XP before trying to install Ubuntu. My labtop is a Sony VAIO VGN-FE660G. I didn't get any start up CD's with my labtop because the files are supposed to be located on my hard drive. So if I ever needed to I could press F10 when loading to reinstall Windows. But now I can't even get there! So I guess I just need some help on what I should do. Thanks in advance!
