Blue Screen

OS X hangs on the blue screen after trying to load up, already tried the repair permision and repair disk with no change in the results. Would appreciate any ideas on how to fix this problem.

Sounds like something is corrupt, you might have to reinstall OS X. Try booting from the install DVD, and see if that does any good.

What changes did you make to your computer (hardware and software) before this started?

Do you have your HD backed up? You should.
If you have DiskWarrior, try rebuilding your directory.
If that doesn't help, can you run DiskUtility and check your SMART status?
It should read "verified".
If it verifies, you could do an archive/install booting from your System DVD.

Hi,

I accidentally changed the settings for my hard drive to 'No Access' for 'Everyone', and now am faced with a blue screen when I turn my Mac on.

Am rather desperate right now as i have a lot of work undone in my mac. Would really appreciate your help! thanks in advance! :-)
