Kia-ora dude

what happens when to try to start in failsafe ?

normally when something like that happens, it gets to this point and says press "Y" to check disks for errors
what happens if you dont press "Y"

Should have explained that I tried failsafe. It gets to the same place in file checking and freezes at 45.1%
Thanks Tewaru

This doesn't sound good

Ummmmm
try putting the Mandrake 10.1 disk in at boot up
and when the first option comes up
select other options
and go to rescue mode
( can't remember offhand how to do that exactly )
and see if you can fix it from there

Hmmm
first use knoppix CD to rescue any data you wish to save

second, because I'm out of options, wait a day or so to see if anyone else can help if not request a moderator to move this thread to the Mandriva forums where you might have better luck with people who specialise in Mandrake / Mandriva

Thread moved to Mandriva, as requested.

Boot your Madrake installation cd in rescue mode. You'll get a menu with a list of options. One of them should be (if I remember correctly) to check partitions. If there is such option, use it. If not, choose to start a terminal/console and from the command prompt you get run
fsck /dev/hda6
It should pass and then, after you reboot, your system should start correctly.

Done what you suggested on partitions they check out ok
Tried fsck/dev/hdc6 and got: no such file or directory i got this on all partitions. I run windows on one hard disk and mandrake on another hard disk.
Thanks tewaru
Update
I went into rescue and used fsck.ext2 /dev/hdc6
It worked and Iam using mandrake once again thanks everyone for the help
