    ext3_abort called


    I recently took my HD out to format another one, and when i put mine abck in, it would not recognize the OS. i thought maybe i wiped the wrong one. i checked with gparted. its still there, thank god. i restarted to lilo and all was good until i was about to put in my username, it gave me this error (before i actually typed anything)
    Code:
    Linux_Box login: ext3_abort called.
    EXT3-fs error (dvice hdb1): ext3_journal_start_sb: Detected aborted journal
    Remounting filesystem read-only
    EXT3-fs error (device hdb1): ext3_find_entry: reading directory #933911 offset 0
    so i had no idea what to do. i tried logging in as root i get this:
    Code:
    Welcome to Linux 2.6.21.5-smp (tty1)
    Linux_Box login:
    this is normal, however when i input root as the user it waits for a second (as if sarching) then without giving me a error message it goes straight back to
    Code:
    Welcome to Linux 2.6.21.5-smp (tty1)
    Linux_Box login:
    I tried logging in as stinkoman, same problem.
    then i tried ctrl +alt+del I got this message:
    Code:
    INIT: cannot execute "/sbin/shutdown"
    So i am extremely confused as to whats happening and why things wont work and what to do about them!
    can anyone help me with this strange problem?

    however i just put my HD at a weird angle (standing up as opposed to laying down) and it is working fine! I will try to lay it back down, but I am beginning to think it has to do with my ribbon wire from motherboard to hd and cdrom
