    Before going to say there is physical problem , do you have a Linux live CD like knoppix or Slax ?

    boot from on of them and run (for ext2 or ext3 )
    e2fsck -c -n /dev/hda1 ( or what you have )

    -c is the Bad block checking
    -n is to don't make any changes to the filesystem

    For reiserfs use fsck.reiserfs without any arguments

    and post about the news.

    it depends wish errors you get ? you can try to fix them even without backup !
    but if they are physical damage so there is nothing you can do.
