    Could be a problem with the hard drive. If you have the original Install DVD, insert that and boot up while pressing the C key. Then run Disk Utility from the menu and see if you can verify and repair your hard drive.

    Make a backup of your data. Your hard disk may be on the way out. If you use something like Carbon Copy Cloner you can clone your drive to a new one.
