I looks like fsck.ext3 has eaten all of your memory. Your system is probably thrashing. Buy more memory.

No. Look at the columns again, reformatted properly:

 PID USER      PR  NI  VIRT  RES  SHR S %CPU %MEM    TIME+  COMMAND
4562 root      25   0  780m  214m 236 R 99.9 42.6  6211:44  fsck.ext3

My _uninformed_ suggestion would be to kill it and run it again. It might help. Or not. At least it's unlikely to make matters worse.
