    The program you need is called fsck (stands for File System cheCK). You need to be root to do it. As you're using Ubuntu, this means invoking sudo. So if the partition you want to check is sda3, type sudo fsck /dev/sda3. Then enter your password when asked.

    WARNING: The partition you are checking must not be mounted or you will corrupt it. Unmount it first, then mount it again when you are finished. Obviously you can't unmount the root partition so you should fsck it after rebooting from a live cdrom (for example your Ubuntu installation disk).
