Ok, my laptop was running just fine (ubuntu 7.10), and I think the last thing I did was update (but I did not upgrade to 8.04). When I start up now, it says there is an error on the disk and checks it, then comes up with this output:
Inode 13910689 (/usr/share/python-support/python-gobject/pygtk.py) has invalid mode (00). /dev/sda1: UNEXPECTED INCONSISTENCY; RUN fsck MANUALLY. (i.e., without -a or -p options) fsck died with exit status 4 [fail] * An automatic file system check (fsck) of the root system filesystem failed. A manual fsck must be performed, then the system restarted. The fsck should be performed in maintenance mode with the root filesystem mounted in read-only mode. * The root filesystem is currently mounted in read-only mode. A maintenance shell will now be started. After performing system maintenance, press CONTROL-D to terminate the maintenance shell and restart the system. bash: no job control in this shell bash: groups: command not found bash: lesspipe: command not found bash: Command: command not found bash: The: command not found bash: dircolors: command not found bash: Command: command not found bash: The: command not found

It means that fsck found an error on your Hard drive and you need to run the command manually. I would suggest that you boot your Ubuntu LiveCD and run fsck from there.
The command would be something like
fsck -t ext3 /dev/hda1 for the 1st partition /dev/hda2 for the 2nd and so on. If you want to check the entire drive you could use
fsck -t ext3 /dev/hda
Or if you have SATA drives, then use this
fsck -t ext3 /dev/sda1
Also, be sure the partition that you are repairing is not mounted when you do this.
See the man page for lots of good info on fsck
