When I launch my ESXI 5.1 in vspere I click the configuration tab and click the system health and I get all gray question marks and when I click the reset sensors I get the following message.

Any idea I have searched for a while and could not resolve it.

Call "HostHealthStatusSystem.ResetSystemHealthInfo" for object "healthStatusSystem" on ESXi "arcturus" failed.

You can try restart "CIM Server" service.

Click on "arcturus" host -> Configuration -> Security Profile -> Firewall -> Properties -> CIM Server -> Options -> Restart

Hope this works!

Restart the Server

Are you using the OEM version of ESXi for your server?

I am sorry it was version 5.0.0-469512 and I did a restart of the CIM service but no luck.  I will be restarting the server tomorrow night.

if you go directly to the ESXi server, you wil *ONLY* see Health Status under Configuration, Hardware Status is a vCenter Server feature.

sorry for the wording mix up the correct wording is health status under configuration you are correct.  I am going to attempt to reboot the server to see if it comes back.
