Fsck error HELP! HELP ! HELP!

I was given a old compaq presario 1200 laptop. (Linux red hat) When I turn on computer I get a error messag saying I need to run fsck manually. But when I type nothing happens . I was able to hit the f8 button an get to the system info but still nothing in there to help me restore system. I have tried all the F# buttons and cant seem to get to any thing to help me restore system or run fsck manually. it also keeps asking for a root password ( I dont know ) to enter maintence. but once again when I type nothing . Any Ideas how to restore this. I dont believe Linux is orignal because there is a windows key on the key pad

Fsck is a file system error check command. Try the root password of nothing, (just the enter key), when ask for the password. Then use the fsck command to repair the file system before rebooting.
fsck - check and repair a Linux file system Try fsck with no options.
SYNOPSIS fsck [ -sACVRTNP ] [ -t fstype ] [filesys ... ] [--] [ fs-specific-options ]
DESCRIPTION fsck is used to check and optionally repair one or more Linux file systems. filesys can be a device name (e.g. /dev/hdc1, /dev/sdb2), a mount point (e.g. /, /usr, /home), or an ext2 label or UUID specifier (e.g. UUID=8868abf6-88c5-4a83-98b8-bfc24057f7bd or LABEL=root). Normally, the fsck program will try to run filesystems on different physical disk drives in parallel to reduce total amount time to check all of the filesystems.
If no filesystems are specified on the command line, and the -A option is not specified, fsck will default to checking filesystems in /etc/fstab serial. This is equivalent to the -As options.

You can install the previous version of Windows - this is Windows XP or you can install the latest version of Windows - this is Windows 7.
You can install a Linux operating system such as Ubuntu or Red Hat
Google search for Linux operating systems to download Linux freeware program.

I have an opportunity to get a free Compaq Presario 1260 with no OS, but I don't know if it's possible to load Windows XP Pro on this type of machine, and I have not tried out my Ubuntu linux disk yet....


My old Toshiba Satellite 490 is even older and has much less processor power and I run XP on it just fine. In fact XP runs faster on it then 98 did.

Known Problems Compaq Presario 1200 laptops are often found with damaged power jacks. Some of these power jacks appear to have been blown in half due to some sort of short; others rip their copper traces off of the motherboard due to stress placed on the power jack. Presario 1200 laptops typically have four tiny copper rings embedded in the motherboard behind the power jack that can be used to reattach a slightly damaged power jack and repair the failing unit.
The LCD Power Inverter cable (which runs through the hinge from the base to the screen), is very susceptible to damage, given the strain of bending when closing the lid. The cable is a 6-strain ribbon variety, and therefore soldering is all but impossible.

Cant run fsck manually


AS I said to you a while ago, the Red Hat Linux is about 10 years old, at least. It will be next to impossible to get repair parts, because they were not as well organized as now. Now they are developing a consumer market and they are doing very well. I suggested to you that I can send you the Ubuntu 9,04, which was just released in the middle of this month of May, 2009.Then, if you still liked the deall, which has aprice of US $ 00.00, I was going to send you a copy of the software with instructions. I have done a great deal of R&D with various distributions of LInux. Of all these I have a list that I can share with you. All of the items below are all Linux: Linux Mandriva 2009 Spring new edition is good, Linux Ubuntu 8.10 is good, but they just released this past may the 9.04 edition. This is what I am using right now. It seems to be unsurpassed by anything else. They have the right specs, they are free, secure, unless one would like to buy a disk for US $ 1.00. Sometimes it is necessary, if the Bootloader is difficult to install, then you can spend US $ 1.00 and avoid all the headaches.

File systerm with errors


You could be the same person I spoke to this morning. I said to him that the Red Hat Linux was too old to try and resurrect. Instead, I suggested the use of the Ubuntu Linux 9.04, which I am using in all of my computers. Unlike Microsoft where they have all secrecy and activating procedures, Linux says: "Copy your disk and give it to your friends..." I have been working with Linux for the past five (5) years and I am delighted at the performance, reliability and cost. If you buy a non- linux computer, it comes with the OS. You have to pay for antivirus, Office and for every accessory. You get the disk for US $ 00.00. The disk you receive the Linux OS, contains all the other programs your may ever need. You are even encouraged to make improvements and they will buy them off of you. I can send you a legal copy of the Ubuntu 9.04 totally free of charge, if you send me your address. I will get the necessary permision from my superiors and I will help you with any problems you may have. For now I will give you my e-mail:<arzobconst@yahoo.com>. We thank you for considering our service... 7862340692 My name is Constantin (arzconst)

How can i install red hat linux on my hp laptop


Actually, Red Hat Linux is now only an Enterprise Level Operating system. Fedora on the other hand is sponsored by Red Hat and is much better suited for a personal computer. Just head over to fedoraproject.org and download the Fedora 10 ISO. Then burn it to a CD and reboot your computer. It should boot automatically into Fedora.

Hope that helped!!

Yeah I dont think they are allowed to make xp drivers even if they wanted to. Try getting all the information about your computer as you can, video card, audio card, nic, ect. Then download separate drivers for everything. If things dont work out just go back to vista or linux, (fedora, ubuntu, kubuntu, red hat, ect.) linux is better anyways and its just fun to use.
