Ubuntu: The root filesystem requires manual fsck


My computer froze. I turned it off and it re-booted with this error:

/dev/sda2 contains a file system with errors, check forced. Inodes that were part of a corrupt orphan linked list found.    /dev/sda2: UNEXPECTED INCONSISTENCY; RUN fsck MANUALLY. Fsck exited with status code 4.  

Please explain it to me what I need to do simply, as I am really new to Ubuntu.


At the prompt write fsck -y /dev/sda to run manual check on the filesystem. The '-y' option will automatically answer yes to all question.
