???????????help. ww need to use this machine asap.
Try an archive and install of the OS. This will save your settings and files but reinstall the OS. You can do this by booting to the cd and choosing archive and install instead of erase and install. If it happens again, it could be a slowly failing hard drive developing bad sectors, or the less likely of bad ram.
