You can use any live cd/dvd and back up your data to an external drive and reinstall. Then I would recommend you unmount the hard drive and run 'fsck /dev/<device name> and see if you are getting some errors. If you get any errors you can use 'fsck -r' which would help you correct any errors manually.
Hope this helps.
