Kernel Panic vs hdb1 problems


I am relatively new to Linux and I have a Linux Serverwhich had been performing quite well all along until a fewdays ago when after some bad shut down it couldn't rebootand showed the following error messages:

EXT3-fs: group descriptors corrupted!EXT2-fs error (device hdb1): ext2_check_descriptors:Blockbitmap for 402 not in group (block 3134187354)!
EXT2-fs: group descriptors corrupted!Kernel panic:VFS:Unable to mount root fs on hdb1

It is failing to pass that stage hence I can't do anything.Is it possible to fix this problem with the original LinuxSystem Disks or is there a way around the problem?

Your help would be greatly appreciated.

You could boot to a command prompt from original disc, then try to check hdb1 (e2fsck /dev/hdb1).
With a bit of luck, errors can be corrected. If not, there are other tools for fixing hardware - but as is is a server I woul replace that disc anyway.
If e2fsck works I suggest you get a new disc and copy everything from hdb. If it doesn't, reinstall on new disc.
