I'd start with resetting the PRAM and SMC. Click here and click here for instructions on the resets. If that doesn't resolve the issue. I'd run disk utilities from your OS X install disk and repair the hard drive.

What are the last 3 characters of your serial number, please? What version of OS X are you running?

Since this is not a MacbookAir I would also recommend checking the ram. +
