Can you boot from an external HD or flash drive?
 
If you can you will likely need to run Apples' '''Disk Utility''' to straighten things up. I would strongly recommend clearing out some of the stuff you have on your disk as you likely ran out of space and/or have a highly fragmented HD. Try using '''Drive Genius''' or other good defragmenter app to defraydefrag the HD.

If you can't boot with an external drive then your problem is not HD/OS related.
 
But given the fact you can get the system to run and access the HD in single user mode I suspect its the HD that just needs attention.
