Help...Urgent ..LVM error..Unable to mount


Hi,
I am using fedora 13 which i upgraded from fedora 12 recently.Things were working fine but couple of days back my gnome panel crased ..I tried to login it will ask for username and password then got stuck there.
But i was able to login via tty (terminal) and access my data.So i left it like that thought of updateing gnome day after but the nxt day internet was not available so i thought of repairing it via fedora 13 DVD. I tried but it failed .Then i went for another upgrade wen i reachd partition table it asked me for inconsistent LVM (ignore ,,reinitialize ) i ignored first but it wont ask d for upgrade but new installation ..so i Aborted next time i reinilized metadata but the case was same.But till then wen i was rebooting i was able to login to the terminal.After nxt reboot it showed .NO ROOT DEVICE FOUND BOOT HAS FAILED ,SLEEPING FOREVER. Since then my trying to get the system up but failing.When my trying to do an installation the patition of my two harddrives sdb1 -150gb and sda2 - 240 gb both LVM partitions showing UNKNOWN.But i can mount /boot partition sda1 which is ext4.
I read a few threads and tried but it not helping ..please Help me on this , as the system has all important data of mine and my seniors..
M also posting fdisk -l and lvmdiskscan.
Thanks in advance.
Kindly help.
