    Default

    try using the following command

    #/sbin/fsck

    #/sbin/e2fsck


    u should be able to check the disk for errors

    *****************IMP*****************

    u cannot run these command when the file system is mounted

    umount all the partitions and bring it to single user mode

    #init s
    or
    #init 1

    and then run any of these commands
