Well I've Linux with Kernel 2.2.12 and now whenever I let it idle for a moment... shows me this error messages:

<<DriveReady Seek Data request error>>

basically it resumes all to:
<</dev/hda1: Unexpected inconsistency>>
and it tells me to run 'fsck' but...it just doesn't solve it. Can anyone help me?

Sounds like a hardware problem.

a very similar problem happened to me on my FreeBSD box.  it asked me to run fsck.  I basically just followed what it had asked me to do which was running fsck numerous times until it had fixed my disk.  it marked bad clusters, cleaned up the disk, and restored corrupted files.  What happened after you ran fsck?  did it say that the disk wasn't fully cleaned or something similar and asked you to run fsck again?  If after fsck has run numerous and the problem still persists, your hard is probably in a very bad condition.

This could be also connected with APM (Advanced Power Management). Have you compiled APM support in kernel? If yes, compile it out (or don't load APM module). In other case your drive must be broken. There are some hacks to work with broken IDE disks (assuming you have such one) -- look in /usr/src/linux/Documentation/ide.txt), but better get a good one.
