Question about Apple Computers & Internet
Your best bet is to reset the System Management Controller;
...and then reset the Parameter RAM:
If it persists after that, try Safe Mode:
...if that persists, try booting to your install DVD and running Disk Utility:
..also note in this article that if for some reason you are unable to boot into your Install DVD the instructions for using fsck will do the same thing.
If that fails to resolve the issue, you'll want to reinstall the system:
If none of these steps resolve the issue, it will likely need repair at an Apple Authorized Service Provider or Apple Store.

Check for a failing hard drive
Trying booting from the Mac OS X install disc.
insert the Mac OS X install disc.
press the start button, while holding down the "C" key on the keyboard
Once you are running from the disc. go to Disk Utilities select the hard drive click the "repair permissions" button at the bottom.
If you get any red errors listed or it doesn't seem to finish repairing the permissions you have a failing hard drive and it will need to be replaced.
If you have repaired the permissions without any errors, you need to reinstall the Operating System.
