Disconnect all peripherals from your computer. Run the repair disk option from your install or system discs. Boot from your install disc & run Repair Disk from the utility menu. To use the Install Mac OS X disc, insert the disc, and restart your computer while holding down the C key as it starts up.
Select your language.
Once on the desktop, select Utility in the menu bar.
Select Disk Utility.
Select the disk or volume in the list of disks and volumes, and then click First Aid.
Click Repair Disk.
Click Repair Permissions.
Restart your computer when done.

Back it up!
Find another Mac w/ firewire.
Target start your Mac by holding down the "T" key until you see firewire logo.
Attach firewire cable between the computers.
Your hard drive will mount on the other computer and you can copy over any files you would really miss.
Often bad blocks in one's computer can develop in important places like the boot sectors.
You may have to do a "Archive and Install" if disk repair, permissions repair, all else fails.
Protect your data.
Applications are easy to reinstall.
Best of luck!
