I would still guess that there is a RAM problem.  Try removing half of
your SIMMs at a time and see if that helps.

I presume that there is nothing useful in dmesg output?

Just move the drive over to another system and run the fsck there.
I bet it will work.  Failing that, you could compile a version of
e2fsck which includes debugging symbols so that gdb prints out some
more useful information.
