connect to another mac (if you have), from the Disk Utilities, do a First Aid ---> Disk Repair.
Dont sent in for repair first.
Another way is to Pop in your Installer Disk that comes with the Mac and
on boot up, Press C
you will load into Installing Leopard/Tiger.
At the top menu, click till you reach Disk Utilties and under it look for your hard drive.
At the First Aid tab, there should be a verify and repair Disk options.
Click on it to check if you can do a disk repair.
Sometimes it works. So all is not lost until you tried everything.
