    Disk permissions wouldn't usually help with something like this.

    Did you try to zap the P-Ram ?

    "Command(Apple Key) + Option(Alt Key) + P + R" When rebooting the system. Hold that key combination directly after you hear the startup chime, and hold it until you hear the chime again.

    See if that works.
