Hi My name isXXXXX hope i can help you.

First we can fix the System Files and Disk Permissions using Disk Utility and see if that works or not..

Run Disk Utility in Single User Mode
Turn your Mac off. Turn it back on and hold down the Command (Apple) key and the S keys at the same time. Then type the following command...

/sbin/fsck -fy (note the space between fsck and -fy)

If you can't run /sbin/fsck - fy then type only fsk - fy

Hit return and the disk utility should run and let it finish. When it finishes and there is no error, then type reboot and hit return. Let the Mac boot up.

Let me know how it goes....

Don't worry, that is Single User Mode. Just run those commands to run Disk Utility.
