You might want to boot the machine with your original Snow Leopard DVD and then enter Disk Utility from the top menu "Utilities". Run a verify and repair on the hard drive. Let's see what it says. Also, I'm assuming you did not buy Apple Care?
Thanks, yes, my original DVD that came with computer. I have done the verify/repair hard drive probably 4 or 5 times. At first it came back as a problem recommended I backup and reinstall but subsequently I was able to get on more than one occasion that the verify/repair was successfully performed.

Not sure why it took like 16 hours or so to do.

My latest intallation attempt took approximately 7 hours or so (not sure as I finally fell asleep).
