    the hirens cd is the best thing ever created haha. but i agree most likely a failing hdd or corrupt boot partition. may need to run startup repair and or rebuild the bootloader etc

    Safest thing to so, replace the HDD and then re-install the system from your restore discs. If the HDD is failing, repairing the system on the same HDD will only mean other problems down the road. If the system is a few years old, the HDD is approaching it's lifespan limit.
