What is your Linux version and is there more than just /dev ? No /dev/sda? or something?

What did you do/try already and what were the results?

you fsck LVM's if they are used, not the underlying object.

Can you post the full command you are fscking as well as the /etc/fstab file and the output from vgs please.
