You need to remount it read-only (ro). See mount(8) for details:

mount /dev/hda3 -o remount,ro

e2fsck /dev/hda3

mount /dev/hda3 -o remount,rw

Consider adding the line: option "dpms" to your XF86Config file
in the monitor section. Example:

Section "Monitor"
    Identifier  "acer aspire 55s"
    HorizSync   30-54
    VertRefresh 50-110
    option "dpms"
