Unlikely, this is most likely a failing HD.
You need to run disk utility from your install disc, cheack and verify permissions, and check and repair the HD (if it needs repair). Reboot and see how things are.
A note from experience. Replace the charger. It could catch fire, mine did.Try my custom Mac Forums Search Engine: Mac Forums Google Search
