Start an Ubuntu (or KNOPPIX or ...) live system from CD (don't start an
installation, just use the 'live' mode where Linux runs from CD). From
a live system's console, run
sudo e2fsck /dev/sda1
or (more dangerous)
sudo e2fsck -fy /dev/sda1
This should repair your file system (if possible).
tells you the available options and what they do.
