Cannot boot after hard reset. begin running scripts init-bottom

http://askubuntu.com – Ok I'm currently running 11.10 amd64 and I have had to reformat at least 7 times in the last two weeks. Any time I have to do a hard reboot Ubuntu will no longer boot (sometimes). Other times it initially wont want to boot but after a few tries it will. This time it wont boot at all. If I remove quiet splash from grub then I can see the it is locking up at "begin running scripts init-bottom done". Part of what is causing this issue is that Ubuntu will not shut down properly on my computer, most of the time it will just hang on shutdown or reboot. But in this case I was playing a game in wine (HowTos)
