I closed out and went on with a couple of hours of routine computer use: wrote an email, checked the forum, downloaded a couple of "Switched to Linux" videos from You Tube, did some writing. The computer acted normally.
Last evening, the computer wouldn't boot up. I get the splash screen then "Emergency Mode" (like Windows Safe Mode?). After logging in "journalctl -xb" brings up the journal. Flagged in red: "fsck failed with exit status 4" and "Failed to start file system check" In grub I ran recoverys for "5.3.0-26-generic" and "5.0.0-37-generic." I got "Loading initial ramdisk..." but nothing seemed to be loading and I let each run for 30-minutes. Under System Setup I get Main Advanced, Security, Boot, Exit. Those all have sub categories. Not sure what to do with those.
God, I feel like such a problem child.
Thank you for suggestions,
My system: Clevo, 250Gb SSD for Zorin 15.1, 1Tb HDD for storage, Zorin's Gnome DE.
