I'd suspect hardware.

Clean dust out.

Run a Hard disk utility from the hard disk manufacturers site

Run memtest86 http://www.memtest86.com/

A thank you would be nice, if I have helped.

Thanks for the advice. Someone also told me that the heat sync was bad and that it was shutting down due to it getting hot. But it has been on the start normal and lauch start up repair screen for 25 minutes now and has not shut down. Im at a huge loss.
