what was the last thing you did ?
did you edit some system file ?
did you install something ?

have you tried using the install cd/or dvd in rescue mode to read the error logs ?
or if you do not have it anymore
use "systemrescueCD"or "knoppix" or some other "live" cd and to read them

Thanks for the reply
the last operation was the 60 second timed close down from Google Gmail.
I will be able to get a " knoppix Live Disc " to try later on.
