Try starting up from your system installation disk by inserting the disk at startup and holding down the "C" key. If this works go to the second screen pull down menu to Utilities > Disk Utility and see if you can repair the hard drive.

+ If holding the C key doesn't work. Try the samething only holding down the "Option" key. That will take you to a menu where you can select the installation disk to boot to.
