Default EXT2-fs warning: mounting fs with errors, running e2fsck is recommended

I am getting a warning
"EXT2-fs warning: mounting fs with errors, running e2fsck is recommended"
on Ubuntu 10.04 64 bit on my laptop Dell Inspiron 1440.

Following is the fdisk output

Disk /dev/sda: 320.1 GB, 320072933376 bytes

What could be the possible cause of warning?

Unfortunately there is no hint from the error message which device has
the errors. According to the fdisk output, one or several of these
partitions might have an ext2 fs and could be the culprit: /dev/sda6,
/dev/sda8, /dev/sda9, /dev/sda13.

I would start from a livecd and use this command in a terminal:

for n in 6 8 9 13;do sudo e2fsck /dev/sda$n -C0;done

That runs the fs check for all these devices and should correct the
errors.

Unless it is your / partition it could be done from the running system.
Unmount each of the partitions and run e2fsck for that particular
partition. If you post your /etc/fstab it is easier to give you some
more detailed instructions.

Here is /etc/fstab

Perhaps a USB flash drive burnt with a Live CD release? Neither USB port nor flash drive also?

OK, It seems you only have a root partition on /dev/sda8 and some swap
partitions in use and all the other Linux partitions mentioned in your
previous mail are not mounted automatically.

Now the question is if you see the warning when you mount one of the
other partitions manually or if you see it in the log during every boot
which would mean it is for the / partition.

In the first case, you could unmount all the extra partitions if
necessary and then run a command similar to what I suggested in my first
reply (this time without checking the / partition on /dev/sda8):

for n in 6 9 13;do sudo e2fsck /dev/sda$n -C0;done

If your / partition is the problem, I would use the command

sudo tune2fs -C1000 /dev/sda8

to set the mount-count of the / partition to a very high number and then
reboot. Now the boot script should do the fs check and obviously you
shouldn't skip that check.

Thats a good idea.
I will try that out.
