Linux OS boot proccess failed while "Checking filesystems"

After resetting a PC  , my CentOSfails to boot up, while falling on the step "Checking filesystems".

Here is the boot proccess:

INIT: version 2.86 booting
...
Starting udev:                                     [OK]
Loading default keymap(us):              [OK]
Setting hostname test1.localdomain   [OK]
No devices found
Setting up Logical Volume Management:    /dev/hdc: open failed: No medium found
   No Volume groups found
                                                           [OK]
Checking filesystems
Warning... fsck.ext3 for device /dev/hda2 exited with signal 7.
                                                           [FAILED]
*** An error occurred during the file system check.
*** Dropping you to a shell; the system will reboot
...
...

1) Tried to repair with rescue disc , not helped ...
2) Running fsck in the shell , dropping the same Warning .
3) All of the data are still there , nothing seems to be deleted for now .

I have a little knowledge of the Linux partitions issue and still didn't found something about signal 7.

Looks like it's serious, and automatic fsck will not fix it.
After You are dropped to the shell, run
e2fsck -y /dev/hda2

I've just reinstalled the system ... Now the server booted up ...
Hope it will be not happen again !
Possibly broken kernel image then. Since the filesystem was corrupted it's possible. Good luck with reinstalled system.
If You hit those problems again - test the memory.

It is possible that the filesystem corrupted because of the restart ?
I've restarted the system with "init 0" command , then the crash happend ...
