So this started yesterday after I tried to consolidate my itunes library back on to my internal HD I got an error message saying the disk could not be written from or to. So i got a different external and was going to try to consolidate everything to that HD except it was full so I ran disk utility to erase that HD. I left for work and came back this am and my computer was froze so I did a force shutdown and rebooted. It took about 20 minutes to boot up and was going extremely slow. Tasks were freezing up and eventually I got a pinwheel for everything I tried to do so I did another force shutdown except this time I could not get it to boot up. After several hours and reseating the battery I finally got it to come on again but it was acting strange still. When I opened mail my inbox was gone and I was prompted to set up my mail account again. I wanted to run time machine but somehow it has been turned off and not been backed up since Feb. Any advice as to whats causing this and what I should do about it?
