    Find the second install disk that came with your computer (hope you have it); pop it in, restart and hold D. Let it run the hardware test and let us know what happens.

    Otherwise try repairing your permissions.

    Yea I second that. It happened to my MBP too with similar symptoms described and got the HDD replaced. The turn around time is usually 3 days if you mail-in. HDD can be replaced on-site at Genius Bar.

    Make sure to back up before you get it fixed.

    Try backing up manually by moving folders one by one. Regarding the Time Machine issue you are having, the behavior is indicative of HD failure.
