    boot from the install disk and use disk utility from there


    -Insert DVD
    -Hold Option as computer starts
    -Select the Installation DVD

    -Let setup run, select language, and when the menus at the top are accessible -- select "tools" > "disk utility".


    Verify the internal HDD, and check SMART Status (listed at bottom of window). Also repair permissions.

    when you get it running properly, try resetting the PRAM.
