try resetting the pram, hold command+option+P+R during startup until you hear 3 chimes, the trelease, alsotry booting holding shift to boot into safe boot mode.
did you recently install any new hardware or software? or try booting from the software restore disc and repairing permissions that way. if none of this works, try doing an archive and install on the system.
