Everytime I switch my emac on now it seems to just stay on a blue screen.

I switch it on then it goes to the screen with the apple logo and loading wheel... does this longer than usual, moments later the blue screen appears with a loading wheel.

Any clues as to whats happened?

Back with the mac!

UPDATE:

I put my osx disks in and launched disk utility.
It recognises my HD, when I click repair it repairs it but the same thing happens.
I tried to erase my HD but it wouldn't do it, same happens when I try to partition it.

Back with the mac!

Have a read of the following, makwanad, and see if there's anything that helps you further troubleshoot your eMacs startup issues.

Resolve startup issues and perform disk maintenance with Disk Utility and fsck
