    Wild guess: Boot into Open Firmware and type:

    reset-nvram
    set-defaults
    reset-all

    so using my laptop
    took computer in for repairs, the hard drive crashed : ( but still under applecare
    got a loaner maxed out 20" for my 17" imac for the next two weeks
    that is how long it will take for apple to send in the parts grrr...
