Why does my MacBook takes time to startup and shutdown?

When i turn my MacBook on, i hear start chime, see the apple logo, see the process wheel spinning and it take 20-30 mins to startup and keeps on freezing for every 5-10 minutes I tried reinstalling new Mac OS X 10.7 the problem still exists.

I had verified and repaired the HDD from the utilities and i have green signal and its a new HDD as i had to replace it in Jan 2013.

Appreciate any kind of help which will resolve in making my MacBook up and running.

It sounds like the HD SATA cable is bad.

Apple & some third parties got some bad cables which appear to work and then any heavy data movement fail.

I would replace the cable and do a fresh install from the recovery CD or Apple supplied USB flash drive (which ever came with your system). Then upgrade it if you want a newer supported version (10.7.5). Once you get your OS upgraded and updated. I would make a bootable USB drive and make sure it too was at the latest OS the system can support as a backup.
