This problem can be either that your hard drive is going bad or that the operating system on your hard drive is corrupted, in which case if the drive is bad you will need to purchase a new Hard drive, if it is the Operating System that has gone bad then you wil need to reinstall the OS which should fix your problems I would suggest that you try to reinstall the Operating System first in case that it is not the Hard drive that has gone bad.
