"how can i solve this ?"

You cannot run fsck against a mounted file system. So boot a live CD. Some live CDs will mount your partitions as read only so you have to umount the partition before running fsck. You also have to tell fsck the file system type. Then run fsck against every Linux partition except swap. Assuming that all four partitions you mentioned are non-swap Linux partitions formatted as ext3 then the commands you would run are:

umount /dev/hda1
fsck -y -t ext3 /dev/hda1

umount /dev/hda2
fsck -y -t ext3 /dev/hda2

umount /dev/hda3
fsck -y -t ext3 /dev/hda3

umount /dev/hdd1
fsck -y -t ext3 /dev/hdd1

man fsck
