I have a problem, I can't boot ubuntu 14.04.

Now I boot ubuntu from a pendrive and when I want to mount the partition where is installed ubuntu appears a pop-up that says

Unable to mount volume 23 GB, Error mounting /dev/sdb5 at /media/ubuntu/3b180041-346e-42af-af4d-d0660bd7a690:

Command-line mount -t "ext4" -o "uhelper=udisks2,nodev,nosuid" "/dev/sdb5" "/media/ubuntu/3b180041-346e-42af-af4d-d0660bd7a690" exited with

non-zero exit status 32: mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sdb5, missing codepage or helper program, or other error In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try dmesg | tail or so"

Please help me, I'm a noob. Sorry for my bad english
