I would shut down to single user mode or boot a rescue CD and try the 
following as root:

fsck /dev/sda1

You might need to unmount it first:

umount /dev/sda1

It might mean nothing, but the above means that if your filesystem has 
errors, remount it read-only.  Therefore, your hard drive might be starting 
to fail or your system wasn't shut down cleanly.  Even if your filesystem is 
fine, running fsck won't hurt anything.
