GParted sees the volume as corrupt and refuses to work, and I can't figure out how to move the boundary with fdisk. Can you give me a hint?

The output from the tail command was: /dev/stdin: x86 boot sector; partition 1: ID=0x83, starthead 254, startsector 1, 68358144 sectors, extended partition table (last)\011, code offset 0x0. Is that the kind of thing you meant?

I am about to give up and wipe the partition. I need to get it working again by tomorrow. Are we getting anywhere?

@jsbillings I tried that and got "No physical volume label read from /dev/sda5 Failed to read physical volume "/dev/sda5" "

@jsbillings The file system was definitely ext3; not sure what you mean by "using LVM". I did make some changes to the partitions on the disk today (under Windows; I dual boot), but successfully booted Ubuntu after that.
