Hi,
    i have just installed a redhatlinux 7.1. I made a shudden shutdown and on booting it produces the message "... error occured during file system check ..." then it asked me for the administrator pass , i gave it, and it prompt me "repair filesystem 1#". I am new at the linux enviroment, so any ideas what so i do in order to start the X-window service.

either you did not shutdown propper, or you have a disk failture.
When it boot and prompts for repair, then just do it:
   fsck /dev/hda1

NOTE: hda1 ist the partition, you need to sunbstitute it by the one your see in the messages

You may have to also run fsck  on all filesystems before it works not just the root filesystem, you can find a list of all the filesystems in /etc/fstab you should run fsck on any /dev/hd* or /dev/sd* that is listed in the /etc/fstab.

one of the reasons for this is the filesystem(s) were left in a unstable state and were not written to properly before shutdown. I have usually found if a system goes down hard more than one filesystem needs fsck to run. This will also save you many reboots to fix each filesystem as it is detected. (Yes I learned that the hard way).

I have also found using a journaling file system much better with power loss the need for fsck is virtually eliminated.

Cheers,

Max
