When I tried to start my computer, it boots in emergency mode and shows some problem. I don't know about these problem. if I run 'exit' command that again brings back the emergency mode. This is shown by system in first

After running 'exit' command


I had the same problem last night and I fixed it using the following steps:

Before starting it would be safe to backup all your data, though I didn't and came out of the problem without losing anything.

  1. First you must boot into your system using a live cd/usb and make sure you have all other devices unmounted from the system.

  2. Run this sudo e2fsck -C0 -p -f -v /dev/<partition_id>

  3. Repeat step 2. for each and every partition you have until you find the corrupted one.

  4. Upon finding the problem, it will show you something like this:

    Inodes that were part of a corrupted orphan linked list found.

    Home: UNEXPECTED INCONSISTENCY; RUN fsck MANUALLY. (i.e., without -a or -p options)

  5. Then run sudo e2fsck -f -y -v /dev/<corrupted_partition_id>

  6. Press 'y' on every prompt to fix them.

  7. Reboot after completion of the full recovery process.
